1,001 (and then some!) Backpacks Arrive in Haiti
The backpacks have arrived in Haiti!
Everyone’s hard work and generosity finally paid off. More than 1,500 backpacks and more than 500 pounds of school supplies were recently distributed to Haiti schoolchildren. Wow! Watch the children receive their backpacks in this video courtesy of local resident Denis Atis, who partnered with PFA’s Executive Vice President Dan Farnesi and his wife Janet, to collect the backpacks and school supplies. PFA students led the collection and organized the shipment of the backpacks and supplies earlier this year. Thank you all very much for participating and making a difference in people’s lives!
