The Spinning Spoke Bike Share
Every kid deserves a bike, right? It's the ultimate kid-experience!
Just drop your gently-used bike 'as-is' at The Spinning Spoke bike shop in Downtown Florence. Their highly skilled team will fix it up and make sure its at tip top performance and ready for its new life in Haiti. Approximately every 3 months, The 610 team will gather up the bikes and ship them down to Croix des Bouquets, Haiti, gifting the like-new wheels to students of HAC's Ecole Shalom, orphanages, and neighboring schools.
'From the Attic to the island' Music Program
Music education fosters deeper learning in students. It’s proven to be beneficial in the development of critical thinking skills, effective communication, collaborative work, and development of academic mindsets. Music education teaches students how to learn.
This year The 610 Project is partnering with Florence Rotary Club to bring music education to the students of Ecole Shalom at Haitian American Caucus in Croix des Bouquets.
We are currently collecting musical instruments, supplies, and sheet music for HAC’s inaugural Concert Band. Have instruments or supplies you'd like to donate*? Let us know by emailing our team at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Here's what we're looking for:
5 French horns
2 baritones / euphoniums
2 alto saxes
2 tenor saxes
1 Bari sax
2 snare drums
1 bass drum
2 acoustic guitars
Plus music stands, mouthpieces, slide oil, reeds, mallets, director’s baton, a tuner & metronome
*All donations are tax-deductible
Balfour Yearbook Project
The 610 Project recently partnered with Balfour Yearbooks and a team of volunteer photographers to offer students of HAC-Haiti their first yearbook experience. Aside from being super fun, this project also offers students on the yearbook staff the chance to gain experience in photography, editing, writing, and technology.
