Highlands donates to Three Angels

A little girl clutched her coin jar, peeking in to see if the amount had mysteriously grown.

She was helping Haiti children with her coin jar — one penny at a time.

Highlands Elementary School recently sponsored a fundraising event supporting the organization Three Angels Children’s Relief.

With the majority of the money coming from coin jars, Highlands’ 600 students raised a total of $1,534.56.

During a recent assembly, Principal Paul Martinsen presented Three Angels’ Director Shannon Hoffman with a check to help support the group’s work to help Haiti recover from the devastating earthquake that hit Jan. 12.

“It was really heartwarming to see students come in with their coins, giving from their leftover lunch money,” Martinsen said. “We heard Three Angels Children’s Relief was a reputable company and was doing good work. We wanted to help out.”

Three Angels Children’s Relief is a nonprofit organization that has a clinic, a school and an orphanage in Haiti, where it provides for the continual needs of Haitian children.

According to the Three Angels’ website, there were about 300,000 orphans in Haiti before the earthquake.

Now, with more 200,000 dead due to the earthquake, there has been a steep increase in demand for Three Angels Children’s Relief services.
