52 Students at William J. Johnston Middle School in Colchester, CT., recently participated in the second annual “Read a ton, Help a ton” readathon. This year, it was decided that the proceeds would help two charities, and students reading would benefit the local food bank along with Restavec Freedom Alliance. Over $750 was raised for each charity and students presented checks to each organization. They also presented flowers to thank both organizations for all of their wonderful work. We thank these students so very much for making a difference!
Restavec Freedom Alliance is dedicated to providing relief for the Restavec children, children who are “given” to families and used as slaves in Haiti. Our mission is to offer a safe, stable, family centered environment for these children.
