helps build school in Dominican Republic
EDEN PRAIRIE, MINNESOTA - Jan Miller Haeg, daughter of Harris and Edna Miller of Balaton participated in a Lifetouch Memory Mission® to build a school in the Dominican Republic. The weeklong mission trip took place in December 2012. This was Haeg's second Lifetouch Memory Mission to Constanza. In December 2011, she helped lead a team of volunteers to build the first floor of the Cecaini school in the small, mountainous farming community of Constanza. Just last month she helped lead another team of 40 volunteers to build the second story to the school. Starting this month the school will serve about 400 children. Without this school, most of these children would not have a chance to receive an education.

Lifetouch, the leading national provider of school and family photography, organized the trip with the assistance of World Servants, a Minneapolis nonprofit organization that offers short-term humanitarian trips in the United States and abroad. Lifetouch invited school administrators and principals throughout the U.S. to work alongside Lifetouch volunteers and Dominican nationals to build the school.
