The clock is ticking for Kym Meehan, the Haiti project director for the Hope Alliance, a nonprofit organization that "empowers impoverished people to create positive and sustainable change in the lives of their families and their communities." On Oct. 10, a team of Park City volunteers will leave for Haiti to distribute shoes, backpacks, school supplies and medicine to students who live in the Camatin area. In addition, some of the volunteers will host health workshops and work with the Poor Children's Assistance Project of Haiti on building upgrades to the schools and many of the homes in the area.
