A free concert at Faith Lutheran Church to raise awareness of an upcoming mission trip brought in a pile of backpacks and children’s shoes, donations the travelers had requested to take to a school in Haiti. An unexpected surprise at the Rockin’ for Relief concert, held at Faith on Sept. 20, was the $500 cash that came in. “People started throwing money in a basket,” Faith music coordinator Bill Munson said. Donations of school supplies and shoes to fit children ages 6 to 12 can be brought to Faith until Oct. 10. The group leaves for Haiti on Oct. 14.

Backpacks, school supplies and shoes were donated at the Haiti benefit concert.
