Shantytown calls attention to Haiti

MT. VERNON — —

A shantytown was set up on the lawn of the Jefferson County Courthouse on Friday by a group from Grace Community Church to call attention to the homeless in Haiti and unsafe water and sanitary conditions. Four members of the church will be going on a mission trip to Haiti early next year. The group used cardboard boxes to sleep in overnight and set up a tippy tap for hand washing.
