Mortgage Contracting Services (MCS), a national field service company providing property preservation, inspections and REO asset maintenance to the financial services industry, has announced its collaboration with a local Haitian-born doctor to support the families of Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, a town of 8,600 on the Northern outskirts of Port-au-Prince, and the rebuilding of its Petit Chaperon Rouge School. Dr. Fred Guerrier, a physician now residing in the Tampa Bay area, has returned there twice each year for the past decade to provide free medical treatment to individuals in Croix-des-Bouquets. Severely damaged in the January earthquake, the Petit Chaperon Rouge School serves this community to educate its 475 elementary students and to additionally supply them with a daily lunch. American physicians and nurses also use the school’s clinic to give medical care to these families. In a joint effort between MCS and The Steans Family Foundation, an affiliate of MCS Holdings LLC, more than $35,000 has been raised to assist Dr. Guerrier in his actions to restore the school’s functionality. All donations are directed at specific, local needs. Annual sponsorship for one child costs $240, and MCS far exceeded its initial goal to sponsor 30 children. To help even more children, MCS is now extending participation beyond company employees to anyone who would like to further aid this cause. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Paul Swindle at 813.387.1594. All donations are tax deductible through the not-for-profit organization, Haiti’s Health Inc. (37-1563177). Mike Carroll, CFO of Mortgage Contracting Services, said, “Our goal is to not make a single gift, but rather to foster an ongoing relationship with the people of Croix-des-Bouquets. MCS has protected and preserved communities all across the U.S. for 25 years, and is grateful for the opportunity to assist this community in need as well.” For more information, visit www.mcs360.com.
