By: David Shepherd, Director of News & Public Information

JASPER -- You have a chance to climb the St. Joseph Bell tower tomorrow during a fundraising event to benefit Haiti.

Your donation will be your ticket to climb the church tower located off of Newton Street in Jasper.

It goes from 9 a.m. until noon.

Your donation can go a long way.  $.25 cents covers the cost of a needed medical consultation for one person.

$1 buys much needed medication.  Many in Haiti have to choose whether to spend a precious $1 on a cup of rice or a prescription.Most can’t afford both.

$60 covers the cost of a teacher’s salary for a month and $100 will feed 200 hungry children for one day.
