Louis family Haiti

Two years’ worth of donations from the students at St. Mary School and the parishioners of the Edgerton Catholic Church, who partner with the national ecumenical nonprofit organization Food for the Poor, have provided a new house for the Louis family, pictured here, in Haiti.

Thanks to nearly $6,000 in donations over the past two years from the students at St. Mary School and the parishioners of St. Mary Catholic Church in Edgerton, the Louis family in Haiti has a new home.

Julie Taylor, St. Mary School principal, said the school for grades K-6 stages a pair of annual fundraisers — one that benefits a local organization and one that benefits a global organization.
