Do We Really Need Another Haiti Event?

I know what you are thinking, “Do we really need to read another post about the city’s Haiti event?”  Of course we do.  Here is why.

  • Garner has the rare opportunity to gather together for the purpose of loving and caring for an incredibly hurt people.
  • There is a growing sense of community in Garner civically (ConAgra, Library), and the Garner Citizens for Haiti event allows us to put that energy together, not in protest, but in solidarity for others who are in need.
  • This event is the rare chance to bring together multiple churches, civic organizations, and other social tribes in a unifying effort.

To prep us for the event, I’ve included an incredible video from the folks at www.churcheshelpingchurches.com.  It does a great job of setting the scene for both the need and the meeting of that need in Haiti.  For more information about Garner’s event, check out www.garnercitizensforhaiti.com.
