Thank you for the support and aid

This page is dedicated to all the people who have been a part of making our collaborations between The Nauset Community and The Haitian Communities smooth and progressive. It is impossible to pinpoint all the many lives who have given support and donations, but through this site we hope we can begin to show how grateful we feel for your efforts.
