Thursday, Jan. 13: One year after the massively destructive earthquake in Haiti, a group of Larchmont moms is rallying the community to help their Haitian counterparts by “Restoring Hope 1 Woman at a Time.”
Inspired by local resident Sandra Wong Geroux, who captured in photos the plight of women who lost limbs in the quake, the group will hold a fundraiser Thursday, Jan. 13 at Larchmont Temple with the goal of raising $3,000 – enough to provide one woman with an artificial limb.
