The Grace Chapel Team
The idea for the Haiti Playground Project was initiated by this group of four (4) families from Winchester and Newton who are graciously giving of their time, money and energy to this important endeavor. Each family attends Grace Chapel in Lexington, Massachusetts and all were moved to action when presented with the challenges of living life in Haiti. As the main sponsors of the Project, this group of 16 are impacting through action, broadening their worldview, and establishing important new friendships.
