The Franco-American Heritage Center in Lewiston, Maine, has many French books of all kinds, French musical records, French dictionaries, etc. (around 30 boxes) that they would love to see go to a school in Haiti. Is anyone aware of how they might get assistance with shipping these items to Haiti? Anyone know of a container going to Haiti that might have room? Please contact Rita Dube at 207-783-1585 or email:
