School sends care packages to Haiti
May 7, 2010 (LINDENHURST) (WLS) -- A minister from Haiti paid a visit to some students in the northern suburbs to thank them for sending help to Haitian children who were devastated by the earthquake.
Since January, children at the Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center have been putting together more than 150 boxes filled with items for kids in Haiti.
They call them "love packs." The pastor expressed his gratitude for their generosity.
"We needed to show love to these children of Haiti. We needed to show them that no matter what happened to them, they can have hope again," said Jephthe Lucien, pastor from Haiti.
The pastor also spent time in their classroom and told the students how happy the children in Haiti will be when they open the care packages.
