Dinner set to raise funds for Haitian relief
Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Lake Oswego will host a benefit dinner Oct. 29 to raise funds for emergency food, water, medicine and shelter for people in the remote villages of southwest Haiti devastated by Hurricane Matthew recently.
The event is co-sponsored by Our Saviors, Compassion for Haiti and Community of Faith church in West Linn, all of which have been working with several international aid organizations to clear the roadways in order to bring basic supplies to tens of thousands of people along the southwest coast of Haiti who were left homeless, injured, sick and hungry from the storm.
The free event includes dinner, featuring: honey pomegranate roasted chicken thighs; rice pilaf; glazed baby carrots with dill and brown sugar; Haitian bread; green salad with Craisins, mandarin oranges and shaved fennel; and sliced mangos for dessert. A slideshow presentation of the challenges the American/Haiti team has faced to reach the village of Les Anglais with emergency aid will also be shown. Donations will be accepted to fund relief supplies, well repairs, seeds and livestock to restart farms, materials to rebuild schools, homes and businesses.
Our Saviors Lutheran Church is located at 15751 Quarry Road in Lake Oswego. To facilitate planning, those who want to attend are encouraged to call 503-635-4563.
