Fundraisers planned to help send volunteers on trip to provided needed supplies, support

PERRIN – Haiti is a country that has been ravaged by floods and in January of 2010, a devastating earthquake killed over 300,000 people and left thousands upon thousands more homeless.

In such dire conditions, no one suffers more than the country’s children. Many children have been left orphans by the death of either one or both of their parents.
