News & Announcements
Guest Speaker - September 30th
On SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH, Mittineague Congregational Church will welcome GUEST SPEAKER, MARY ANN MARZANO, creator of ORGANIC CHANGE FOR HAITI, a non-profit organization to support an orphanage called Dada's Place in Haiti.
This is Mary Ann’s story… Supporting an orphanage was never in Mary Ann’s life plan. But her curiosity for other cultures led her to Haiti and a friendship with Dada’s Place. Then, in the early Spring of 2016, Mary Ann was told of Dada’s work and agreed to help out. She then booked a trip to Haiti to check out the situation first-hand. What she found saddened her. Needs that Mary Ann had never thought of, such as beds, schooling, high quality food, fuel for cooking, solar panels, etc., were not being met. None of this reflected badly on Dada. As is everyone else in Haiti, Dada is doing the best she can with limited resources. Once seeing this, Mary Ann could not turn her back on the needs at this home and is now looking for support to help her in this mission.
Please consider attending worship on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH, to hear Mary Ann's story first-hand and donate to a very important cause. You, too, can make a difference in the lives of so many children.
For more information, please visit the ORGANIC CHANGE FOR HAITI Facebook page or the website at www.organicchangeforhaiti.org.
