The Olive Branch for Children
Supporters of The Olive Branch for Children enjoyed a great evening of bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes at Vaughan Mills Mall and raised approximately $11,000 for its future projects. The Woodbridge-based charity was founded in 2005 by Deborah McCracken, the charity’s principal worker in Tanzania. Olive Branch runs beneficial projects, permanent medical clinics, two homes for HIV/AIDS-infected children, and over 20 Montessori junior schools for village children in Tanzania. www.theolivebranchforchildren.org
