North Shore Interact Club Members Raise $5,000 for School in Haiti

The North Shore High School Interact Club presented a check to “The Friends of Montfort” in the amount of $5,000. These funds were raised by the Interact Club by taking part in last year’s Sea Cliff Mini Mart, garage sales and various concerts. The Interact Club is supported by the Glen Head Rotary Club whose members act as mentors for the students.

The “Friends of Montfort” are a group of Haitian/Americans who support a school in Haiti for deaf and deaf/blind children. One of the school’s three buildings was totally demolished as a result of the recent earthquake. Fortunately, there was no loss of life of any of the 600 children or staff. These funds will be used to help support the displaced children until such time as the destroyed building can be restored.
