Comrade Danny Vaughan is part of a team from Millgrove United Church who will be going to the Dominican Republic to build a home for a very poor family.  The cost for materials to build the home is $6500.  The house is very basic, however, a major improvement from the shacks/shelters the family are presently living in.  Each member of the build team will be paying their own way and their expenses. This build is being taken on in conjunction with the Samaritan Foundation. Our Branch will be making a donation to help with this very worthwhile venture. Personal donations can be sent to:  Millgrove United Church, 370 Fifth Concession West,

Millgrove, Ontario L0R1V0   receipts will be  provided.
