The QCC Early Childhood Education Club collected food items for Haiti this month to support the initiatives of the Be Like Britt Foundation.

The people of Haiti experienced a devastating earthquake in 2010 and more recently, Hurricane Matthew damaged their island country.

The ECE Club at QCC held a drive to collect non-perishable, dry food items for the Be Like Brit Foundation. Be Like Brit is a local foundation that was started by the family of Britney Gengel, a 19-year-old resident of Rutland who perished in the earthquake.

Karen O’Neill, the ECE Club Advisor, said the drive was successful. The members of the club helped sort the items.

The ECE Club collected two full boxes of food from the QCC family including canned tuna, spices, canned ham, parmesan cheese and powdered milk. Donations were delivered to the Be Like Brit Foundation on Pullman Street in Worcester.
