Haiti, a country that is especially close to Harris-Stowe’s heart, was adopted by the University last year as a service-learning project. Numerous crates of new school supplies were collected by University personnel and sent to students at the Eben-Ezer des Abricots primary school.
The Harris-Stowe administration encouraged its faculty and staff members to give at whatever level they saw fit, as the Eben-Ezer des Abricots School now needs money more than ever. The school has decided to take in the overflow of children who have lost their parents in the Haiti earthquake.
Harris-Stowe State University presented a check to St. Louis Area American Red Cross CEO Cindy Erickson.
