A nonprofit group based in Randolph was recently recognized for its humanitarian efforts in Haiti. In a ceremony Jan. 7 at Lombardo’s in Randolph to mark the island nation’s 208th anniversary since gaining independence, Haitian officials honored Randolph4Haiti. The group was formed in response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake. At the ceremony, Town Councilor Ken Clifton, a member of the group, thanked residents for their compassion and generosity. “The entire town was mobilized and Town Manager Dave Murphy ensured that we had what we needed to assist Haitian-Americans here in Randolph, and Haitians in Haiti,’’ said Clifton. He said the town helped by making office space available; extending hours at school and town library computers to aid communication between families; collected food, clothing, medical supplies, tents, and other items; and sending delegations to visit the island.
