Helping Haiti

As you recall, the country of Haiti experienced a devastating earthquake in 2010. The country continues to struggle to regain its strength. As a global community service project, New Salem Elementary School collected over 1500 items during the month of May 2012 to send to the country of Haiti. Items collected included bar soap, toothpaste, hats, and small toys. During the month of June, a team from Union County traveled to Haiti to build homes and provide support to the people of this struggling country. One member of this team was a former teacher at Prospect Elementary School, Mrs. Erin Helms. The pictures show Haitian children receiving the items that were collected by New Salem students.
