In February 2017, our school nurse, Deborah Papperman, took a group of high school students, parents and alumni on a mission trip to Haiti. They distributed personal hygiene items to various orphanages in this poverty-stricken country and provided much-needed basic medical care to hundreds of Haitians. The personal hygiene products, as well as loose change, were collected by CCS Middle School students over the past few months. The initial goal was to collect enough change to buy a bag of rice, however, the students brought in enough money to buy a goat, a bag of rice, and a bag of beans! $180 was collected and numerous amounts of toothbrushes, toothpastes, deodorants, shampoos, etc. were purchased.
