Caledonia community doing its part for Haitian survivors
Editor’s note: This is the second article about Caledonia native Amy (Kruckow) Heaney, who has made seven relief mission trips to the Central American island of Haiti. The 2000 graduate of Caledonia Area High School, is the daughter of Fred and Vicki Kruckow of Caledonia.
For Amy (Kruckow) Heaney, a 2010 trip to Haiti after a devastating earthquake has become a life passion to help others. Her passion has led her to create a non-profit, Lavi, which means “Life” in Creole – the language spoken in Haiti. According to Heaney, “Lavi (Life) is dedicated to supporting community growth.
Our mission is to empower people while embracing their community through growth in education, medical outreach, and sustainability.” Through her non-profit, she works with other organizations around the world to provide services in Haiti. See more in Audrey Alfson’s Caledonia Argus story.
