Local boy raises $459.36 for Haiti victims

   Six year old, Isaac Stevenson, of Orofino, had a successful bake sale Saturday. When he saw children (on television) suffering in Haiti, he wanted to do something for them. He emptied the contents of his piggy bank, a little more than $4, and gave what he had. His parents, Robert and Sabrina, decided to help him by holding a bake sale.

   Another little girl, Cheyenne (last name unknown) brought Isaac all the money she had out of her piggy bank $10.36) to help the kids in Haiti.

   Late in the afternoon, a man stopped by, asking Isaac how much it cost for a loaf of bread. Isaac told him $2. The man asked Isaac if his goal was to make $100. Isaac said, “Yes.” The man handed him a $100 bill and said, “Your goal is met.”

   Isaac’s mother said, “These were only a few of the angels the Lord sent out on Saturday.” All total, Isaac raised $459.36 which will be distributed to Haiti through funds handled by the Cream Ridge United Brethren Church.

   Isaac and his family, wish to thank the many people who contributed to this cause.
