As a missions project, Cumberland Christian middle school students collected personal hygiene items and loose change in order to help some of the orphaned children of Haiti. The initial goal was to collect enough change to buy a bag of rice and prepare fifty bags of personal hygiene products; however, the students brought in enough money to buy a goat, a bag of rice, and a bag of beans. And, $180 was collected and numerous amounts of toothbrushes, toothpastes, deodorants, shampoos, and more was purchased. Mrs. Papperman, Cumberland’s school nurse, will be taking a group of high school students, parents, and alumni to Haiti in February. They will be distributing the items to various orphanages in this poverty-stricken country. Students from left are: Lauren Thompson, Annastacia Marshall, Jason Calderon, and Leonardo Torres.
