PGCAC Haiti Clean Well Water Drilling & Disaster Fund
Inspiration has inspired innovation with our work for Haiti. Beyond just raising funds, we focused on the clean well water drilling project and negotiated a presentation from the Ambassador of Jamaica, who had experienced this issue of unsafe water in communities. Inspiration inspired innovation with this partnership during our International Day of Service. Ambassador Anthony Johnson shared his personal experiences with the community, who welcomed an opportunity to enter into a dialogue with an expert who could provide the answers. Funds totaling $5,435 were raised to support this project in Haiti, once again advancing our partnerships in the international arena.
The Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter (PGCAC) centered its International Day of Service Initiative on the impoverished country of Haiti and its tremendous, ongoing need for clean water. Being endlessly mindful of the need for partnerships and collaborations, PGCAC forged an alliance with the Prince George’s Community College, the Delta Foundation, the Mission to Haiti, the Ambassador from Jamaica to the United States, the local community bulletin board at Fox-5 television, the community television cable network (CTV), the local Gazette Journal newspaper, and WHUR-FM local radio station.
