An annual Haiti Night Celebration is held each year to celebrate recent accomplishments, thank our volunteers and supporters and provide an update on the feeding programs and the current situation in Haiti at these events.
This year’s event was held at Emmanuel in Hermitage, TN on August 7. Thank you to everyone that made it an amazing night thanking God for all His blessings.
