BOCA GRANDE, Fla. - A group of people in Boca Grande are trying to raise money to build a village in Haiti and they almost have enough. They're short by about $40,000. The only thing left to finance is a community center.

Building has already started in Haiti, and the village is expected to be finished by the end of this year.

Some of that group in Boca Grande will head down there for the ribbon cutting.
