The York Center Congregation will be again challenged to “Fill the Ark” ($5000) for Heifer International during the Advent season, December 4-25, 2016. This year the Witness Commission will target the Ark towards projects in Haiti.
Hurricane Matthew made landfall near Les Anglais in western Haiti on October 4, 2016, as a Category 4 storm slamming the vulnerable nation with 145 MPH sustained winds and torrential rainfall. Heifer’s project participants in Haiti have suffered significant material damages, including to housing, crops, and livestock.
The 2016 “Fill the Ark” challenge has been met!
