Project '79 Hosts Silent Auction Tonight
Proceeds will benefit the upcoming trip to the Dominican Republic.
Project '79 will host a silent auction at 6:30 p.m. tonight in cafeteria A of Westfield High School. This is the major fundraiser for Project '79's 2012 work trip to the Dominican Republic.
Since 2007, Project ’79 has been involved with Foundation for Peace (www.foundationforpeace.org) in the construction of a school/community center, water purification system, and clinic in the very poor district of La Javilla de la Cruz Grande, just north of the capital city of Santo Domingo.
As part of our emphasis on service as one way to understand our relationship to the larger world, Project ’79 has run work trips to the D.R. in 2008, 2009, and 2010. We will return one last time with our largest group ever—nearly 30 participants!—from July 25th to August 3rd, 2012. We will be completing construction on classrooms on the second floor, as well as painting and other
finishing touches. On one of the days, participants will help run a medical clinic for about 500 local families, staffed by doctors and nurses who volunteer their time through the Foundation for Peace.
Work trip participants often describe their time in the D.R. as a transformative experience in their understanding of the world. Visit the SERVICE page on project79.tumblr.com to view our "Dominican Unicorns" video.
Donations are still gratefully accepted.
