Fill the Ark

arkThe 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.
