COLUMBIA CITY â€” What was once an idea to provide aid to Haiti, has evolved into a full fledge mission.
Just Cause International, formed by Whitley County residents Thaddeus McKee, Jeff Royer and Alex Carlin, is a nonprofit outreach organization designed to provide support and hope to Haiti.
A benefit concert is set for Saturday at First Church of God, Columbia City, from 6 to 8 p.m. Nina Daniels, a worship leader from Chicago, will be the featured performer. The concert is free, but donations will be accepted to aid in the next phase of JCIâ€™s work in Haiti.
JCIâ€™s concept is more than simply bringing food and a friendly face to the poverty-stricken country of Haiti.
