TCC’s Annual Meeting
Tuesday, May 8, 5:30-8 p.m. / Grill on the Hill, Green Hill Park, Worcester
Bonds between Central Massachusetts and the village of Grand Goave in Haiti couldn’t be stronger, though they probably would not exist were it not for a tragedy.
From the loss of Britney Gengel in the island nation’s 2010 earthquake has grown Brit’s Home, an orphanage for 66 children in the village where Britney was working at the time.
Her parent’s founded Be Like Brit, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to honor Britney’s giving spirit, and since construction of the orphanage began eight years ago more than 1,200 volunteers have helped build. To build not only the orphanage shaped like a letter “B” for all to see, but to build more than 100 homes for residents of Grand Goave who have needed shelter since the quake.
“We’re very blessed that people from all over the world have helped us, but Worcester County has really stepped forward to help us,” said Cherylann Gengel, Brit’s mom. She’s there once a month even now, and she’s seen the growth of volunteers to surpass 300 a year.
Join us for The Communicators Club Annual Meeting on May 8 when Cherylann brings the warmth of this bond to us in graphic detail.
We’ll learn about the spark – Britney’s spirit and motivation as a college student majoring in our field of communications along with social work.
We will see what all of this has produced, a giving spirit that endures. And we’ll learn all that’s been accomplished and what it’s meant — how it’s growing and will continue to grow.
