Hoops for Haiti


APSU Men and Women’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay Athletics will donate all proceeds from tickets sold at the door at the women’s and men’s basketball games on January 20th and 22nd to a project in northern Haiti.  This project, initially developed by an Austin Peay professor with support from the university, has received further funding from the Clarksville Sunrise Rotary Club. 

The purpose of the project is to provide material and logistical support to a group of about 200 coffee and cocoa bean farmers in Tibouk, Haiti, who are trying to raise the quality of their products so as to be able to export them to the United States and other countries.  A small group of Rotary members will travel to Haiti later this year to continue work on this project.
