In 2008, after a tropical storm and 3 consecutive hurricanes ravaged the country, St. Mark’s started a monthly food collection on the first weekend of the month to send to Haiti.  Since our sister parish at Notre Dame de Lourdes does not have a food program, St. Mark’s sends this money to support Madame Samsan’s feeding program in Port-au-Prince.

Mme Samsan’s group feeds 75-100 neighborhood children 5 days a week. The meal consists of beans and rice supplemented by multivitamins.
