Funds Raised for Hope for Haiti Project Helps Build New Computer Lab and Library

UFCW local unions from around the country donated funds to help the Haitian people to get back on their feet and rebuild their country after the devastating earthquake in 2010. The UFCW partnered with Hope for Haiti to rebuild the computer lab and library at St. Francois de Sales School in the neighborhood of Riviere Froide, commune of Carrefour, Port-au-Prince.

Students started classes at the St. Francois de Sales School in Port-au-Prince on Otcober 1st.

Thanks to the generous donations from UFCW local unions, the St. Francois de Sales School officially began on October 1st with the computer lab and library set to open on January 12th. Some of the materials purchased with the donations to help complete the computer lab and library include 34 computers outfitted with Microsoft Office software, along with tables, chairs, book shelves, and lockers. The school will provide education to more than 1,320 students in the kindergarten, primary, and secondary levels.
