$2,000: January 2010 – Haitian Ministries for the Diocese of Norwich and Save the Children
Connecticut Returned Peace Corps Volunteers donated $2,000 to assist those in need in Haiti after the earthquake that destroyed Port-au-Prince and devastated large sections of the country.
$1,000 was donated to Haitian Ministries for the Diocese of Norwich, located at 1595 Norwich-New London Turnpike, Uncasville, CT 06382. The second grant of $1,000 was awarded to Save the Children, located at 54 Wilton Road, Westport, CT 06880. CTRPCV is very familiar with the work done by both groups because CTRPCV members are personally involved with these two Connecticut based nonprofit organizations.
