H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 Is Sending A Crew Of Volunteers Skilled In Plumbing To Love A Child Orphanage, Fond Parisien, Haiti
Volunteers will depart from JFK Airport on Sunday (6/26) and will hit the ground running. The team will assist our hosts, Bobby and Sherry Burnette of Love A Child Orphanage, in making much needed plumbing repairs and general orphanage upgrades. The plumbing system had been compromised prior to the January 12, 2010 earthquake and has yet to be fixed. Repairs have been delayed as the overwhelming medical and housing needs of the injured, currently located on the grounds of the orphanage, has taken top priority. H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 members continue to demonstrate their flexibility and willingness to respond when needed. We’d like to thank our generous benefactors at Jefferies & Co. who have made this mission possible.
Bill Keegan, President and Founder of HEART 9/11, has been recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of eight outstanding individuals in the United States who have been credited with leaving their first careers behind and following their passion for helping others by founding non-profits.
