Proceeds from the event will support the organization’s annual back to school distribution and the holiday celebration and toy drive. For many of these children, this may be the only school supply or Christmas present they will receive. The 2010 earthquake left over 450,000 children in Haiti displaced. Many of these children continue to face multiple traumas such as violence, family separation, and social instability.
