Village of Hope Haiti
The VoH School and Health Center are up and running again after a
2 week closure. Our Field Directors, Rob and Trish Low, are back and
schedules at both the school and health center are pretty much normal at this
time. All classes are completely full and the kids especially are glad to
be back at their studies. All services at the health center are available
to patients and many people from the surrounding area have been coming for
help. Unfortunately, unrest can break out again at anytime. Mission
Team visits are cancelled for March. The VoH staff will continue to
monitor the situation and determine when team activities will resume. Please continue to pray for peace in Haiti! Check the Village
of Hope Facebook page often for current news. To learn more about our work at the Village of Hope Haiti, please click here.
Care Ministry Needs
GAS CARD DONATIONS: The Food Pantry has a cargo van that picks up donations from generous donors almost daily. Gas cards are needed to keep the van running. You may send cards to Harry Drier, 5380 N. Ocean Dr. Apt. 6D, Singer Island, FL 33404.
FOOD PANTRY RECOVERY: Each week the Food Pantry distributes food to families in need in Lake Park. Items most needed this month are pasta and pasta sauce. Other items needed are: Community_Food_Pantry_Needs.pdf. We are in need of volunteers on Tuesdays from 9 to 11 am to distribute food and on every other Friday for food sorting from 8:30 to 10 am. Contact Harry Drier for details at 561-601-8211 or email@example.com.
HOMELESS MINISTRY: Items needed for the Homeless at St. Ann: shoes, belts, hats, cloth shopping bags, men’s jeans/pants (sizes 28-38) and ladies pants. Small size toiletries, band aids, sunscreen, bug spray and vitamins are needed. Please place in the patio storage room. We need laptops or iPads for families in transition from homelessness. If you have one to donate, please contact Harry Drier at 561-601-8211.
DIAPER DRIVE FOR HOMELESS MOTHERS: Children’s Home Society cares for young homeless mothers and their infants. CHS provides a 2 year program that teaches these young moms how to care responsibly for their baby, educates them and finds them work. HSLC is collecting diapers. We have also begun collecting baby clothes up to 24 months. If you knit or crochet, we are taking donations of baby booties and receiving blankets. Please bring them to church. Please contact Evelyn Lyerly with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-308-1292.
GLASSES FOR HAITI: We will continue to collect reading glasses and non-prescription sunglasses to be sent to the Village of Hope in Haiti. We will have a shipment going in late 2019. Please continue to donate and thank you for your support.
SANDWICHES FOR THE NEEDY: Hard boiled eggs and sandwiches are needed each week for the hungry. Please bring individually wrapped sandwiches with no condiments and boiled eggs in a container and leave in the church kitchen refrigerator by 9:00 AM on Wednesday mornings.
