Machias group lends BonaResponds a helping hand!

Members of BonaResponds and the Christian Youth Corps based in Machias as well as area contractors worked make crutches for Haitian amputees, as well as those who suffered broken bones in the earthquake that struck there Jan. 12.

Stressing that there is a great need for community involvement and many other projects will be in the works:

"This project is a total community effort,” Mr. Andrews said.

Not only are locations in and around Olean collecting crutches, but Villa Maria College and Erie County Medical Center, both in Buffalo, have joined in the cause.

“Both my brother and I are runners, so my brother used the analogy that the efforts for Haiti are going to be a marathon not a sprint,” said Mr. Mahar.

Here is a video Breanna of the OTH made:
