Hartshorn Elementary School students recently held a “Help Hartshorn Help Haiti” drive to collect much-needed medical supplies for the people of Haiti. The student council made posters for the drive and helped sort the donations of vitamins and over-the-counter medicines, which Natalie Orsini will take with her on her second trip to Haiti, which she makes this month.
Natalie Orsini, a Chatham teacher, and daughter of 5th grade Hartshorn teacher Michele Orsini, was part of a volunteer mission in Haiti this past July. She worked with Haitians in tent cities, orphanages, and medical facilities.
