Beacon is Doing Our Part to Help in impoverished countries

We have been looking at opportunities to help in other countries. The more we talk about needs, the more requests we receive. The interest to help started with Ms. Turcotte traveling to Haiti every year to help with educational needs. Children must pay to go to school and most can't afford it. Ms. Turcotte will be heading there again in February.


Mrs. Go is joining her family on a medical mission in January working with the Indigenous people called Aetas in the mountains of the Philippines.


Beacon families want to sponsor a shoe cutting party to help an organization called Sole Hope who takes these pieces and crafts shoes for people in Uganda. These shoes are necessary to ward off jiggers, which lay eggs that multiply and cause painful tissue damage in peoples feet.

The PTSA will begin a shoe drive to help people micro-enterprise by selling these shoes for a small amount , but will train them with the skills to be self-supportive.


An after school club is starting on Tuesdays at Founders to make crafts to sell at school events and hopefully fairs. The proceeds will be donated to oversees needs. Programs are being developed at Beacon as well.
