Our own Ahaji Schreffler, RScP is the US Liaison to Love Orphanage. She met Gabriel during her first volunteer trip to Haiti in December 2011. Briefly mentioning Love Orphanage, she was intrigued and inspired. She was touched by the impact of one person’s sacrifice and dedication in changing the children’s lives. Unlike orphanages that receive sponsorship from international missionary groups, Love Orphanage had little assistance. She travels to Haiti twice per year to spend time with the children and transport needed donations, as well as regular fundraising campaigns to help support Love Orphanage’s mission.
Fill A Bowl Project
“Fill a Bowl” is a community project promoted by the Humane Society of the United States. It is a collection of needed items for local shelters, sanctuaries or other organizations serving the needs of our non-human family. For CCL, collections are one Sunday a month, and delivered by CCL Animal Chaplain; Regina DeBarberie. Collections are expected to resume once we get back to “in-person” services.
