Fredonia Hill VBS collects supplies for Haiti mission trip

Posted: Updated:
NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

An upcoming mission trip to Haiti is sending 25 East Texans to the impoverished country.

Each individual has to provide at least $800 on their own, which many are doing through fundraisers.

Fredonia Hill Baptist Church will pay the rest.

Thursday children attending Vacation Bible School at the church brought items to be taken on the mission trip to Haiti.

Soaps, toothbrushes and deodorant were just a few of the items donated.

Along with contributing to the mission trip, the kids and their families were able to write notes of encouragement to those receiving the donations

 "I think its exciting because you actually get to help someone in need when you have that stuff and they're over there in a different country really needing that stuff," said Maddy Stout.

Funds and supplies are always needed before the July 1 departure.
