The Haitian Project Garage Sale

July 31–August 2 • The Madeleine Parish Hall

Even before the devastating earthquake of January 2010, The Madeleine Parish was a steadfast supporter of The Haitian Project, a Catholic Mission which supports and operates Louverture Cleary School (LCS), a tuition-free, Catholic, co-educational secondary boarding school for economically under-privileged Haitian children.

Imagine living in a place where…

It is for this cause that, each year, The Madeleine Parish comes together with contributions of time, talent and merchandise to raise money for this worthy mission. One hundred or more volunteers work in the summer heat to raise sorely needed funds to support the school, and a good number work year-round organizing the event and securing donations.

If you have merchandise to donate, or wish to volunteer your time, please contact Megan Callahan, 503-806-6871 or; or Steve Holmes, 503-706-7937,
