Riverside School in Greenwich Hosts ‘Vacation for Haiti’ Event as Part of ‘Valuable Lesson’ in Community Service
GREENWICH – Riverside School hosted its fourth annual âHolidays to Haitiâ community service event to connect and help students at Danita’s Children, a school in a poor part of Haiti.
âHaiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and has been overwhelmed by hardship, natural disasters and COVID-19,â said Christopher Weiss, principal of Riverside School, in a statement. âAsking our students to help people who are considerably more difficult in their daily lives is a meaningful and valuable lesson that will resonate with them for years to come. “
