CELA Students Collect Supplies for Children in Haiti
Students from Christian Education Leadership Academy in Pewaukee collected items for children in Haiti. Students in 3K-8th grade collected school supplies, balls, bats and educational games. They even organized the drive so the items could be sent to Haiti in time for the children to receive the gifts for Christmas. The collection/mission project was part of their lessons on compassion. The Christmas gifts will go to children (many of them orphans) of Haiti who live in a community below poverty level and that has been heavily impacted by lack of supplies due to COVID-19 and Tropical Storm Laura.
