This year Haiti was rocked by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake that was followed by up to 52 after shocks ranging from 4.5 and higher. This country already having heavy poverty was now faced with even worse conditions.
Houses were demolished, food was scarce, and clean water was becoming rapidly harder to obtain. Many countries reached out with financial and physical aid sending doctors and builders to the area to help get the people of Haiti back on their feet.
Locally, Matt Summers (a ServiceMaster of Cherry Hill employee) and his church set out to rebuild some houses in Haiti. The helped to begin building 2 homes completely damaged in the earthquake and finished 3 homes previously started. With some financial and clothing donations ServiceMaster of Cherry Hill was able to give back as well.
