Hike for Haiti Hunt | March 6-7, 2021
Each year, we come together to support our sister school, Ste. Marguerite School, in La Tournelle, Haiti. This year, since we can’t hike together in Eaton Canyon, we’re holding the first Hike for Haiti Hunt! Your family can participate in this fun scavenger hunt from anywhere and on your own time. We’ll still get outside and learn about our partner school while we do.
Mark your calendar to participate on March 6 or 7! Students will receive the scavenger hunt activity cards the week before the event. Click here to download the activity card.
We’ve partnered with our neighbor El Patron Restaurant (2555 N Lake Ave) to raise even more funds for Ste. Marguerite’s. Order takeout or dine outside at the restaurant on Sunday, March 7 from 2-6 pm and the restaurant will donate 15% of sales to the Haiti Partnership. This is a great way to support a local favorite restaurant and our sister school in Haiti! No flyer is needed.
Don’t forget to take photos and tag them! #hikeforhaiti2021 #saintmarksstrong
Every year, we also raise funds to send to Ste. Marguerite. Your support travels 3,000 miles and goes a long way in La Tournelle! Donations are tax deductible and processed through St. Mark’s Church.
Here are ways your contribution helps:
$375 – Keep Ste. Marguerite’s School open for a week
Most school families aren’t able to cover tuition, which means teachers often go several months without being paid at all. You can ensure that a week of learning will go on and affirm the professional value of educators for the students of La Tournelle.
$65 – Provide lunch for the 130 students at Ste. Marguerite’s for a day
This may be the only meal they have that day, and any child learns better with a full stomach. Many of the students save some of the meals to share with their families as well. Your donation also helps build the local economy, as it includes the costs of bringing ingredients up the mountain and employing cooks.
$35 – Provide lunch for one class for a week
$2.50 – Lunch for one student for a week
