Project Update plus October 19th is Bonus Day!

Donated seeds and tools
Donated seeds and tools

The families in Lory have recently received their first donations of seeds and tools! To get this new project started off, several collaborators who have worked together with Partners of the Americas and our Farmer to Farmer Program pitched in to supplement project donations. Students from Rutgers University donated seeds and some spades. Farmer to Farmer volunteer Robert Spencer, of the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service, gathered and transported seeds, tools, and some other materials donated by Lincoln Farmers Coop (Tennessee), Alabama Farmers Coop, Marshall County Farmers Coop (Alabama), and Spencer's Farm. We would like to thank all of our supporters, and our online donors, for your generous contributions. These donations came just in time, since August and September are an ideal time to plant vegetable seeds in Haiti.

Everyone is excited about future of this project in Lory.Partners of the Americas’ project leaders will be traveling to Haiti later this month. During their trip they will visit the project site, talk with local project coordinators, and plan for future stages of this project.

Also, on October 19, GlobalGiving is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project! So any donation you make on the 19th could have 30% more impact on lives in Haiti. And again, we thank all our donors for your generous support.

Stay tuned for pictures and more updates!
