HAITI SCHOOL COLLECTION DURING BOOK BUY BACK WEEK
December 11, 2008 - Haiti Connection volunteers will be staffing a table and collecting donations daily Monday through Friday (Dec. 15 - 19) from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the lower level of the Wege Center.

The Haiti Connection of Aquinas College is a group on campus dedicated to deepening and sharing our understanding of poverty, our human "connectedness," and the gospel message of social justice by providing opportunities for participation in Haitian culture.
The Haiti Connection has established a "sister-school" relationship between Aquinas College and the Andre Pierre School in Borel, Haiti. Students learn about poverty and development through experiencing life in Haiti, visiting the Andre Pierre School and working in a children's hospital. This Service-Learning trip includes a three-credit course during second semester.
