On Wednesday, January 12, 2011, Mars Hill Bellevue commemorated the one-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake by assembling World Vision Promise Packs for Haitian children.

More than 50 men, women, and children participated in the event to fill 250 backpacks with school supplies and personal care items, and the completed packs were picked up the following day by World Vision for shipment to Haiti.

Thank you to everyone who participated, either by assembling packs or by contributing financially to the event.  We had a great crew who helped with set-up, pack assembly, and clean-up.  We are grateful for your partnership in showing God’s love to the children of Haiti!

And a special thank you to our wonderful community group! They came early and stayed late to help make the event happen. Thanks, guys!
