READY TO HELP – Nick Wagaman packs his bags for Haiti. With the support of his boss, the 30-year-old Wagaman will live and work for a month as a volunteer helping with cleanup in the earthquake-torn country. (Bill Schwartz/Gettysburg Times).
After an earth-shattering earthquake-ravaged thousands of people in the small country of Haiti this past January, Lisa Grim, owner of The Pub & Restaurant on the Lincoln Square in Gettysburg wanted to do something.
While sending money through different organizations was a popular way to help, Grime wanted a more direct way of reaching those in need.
“I wanted to go and help but with my family I couldn’t,” Grim said. She wanted to send someone who could truly make a difference and figured one of her employees, Nick Wagaman, would be perfect for the task. “Nick is very caring and has traveled a lot,” Grim said. “With his personality, he can really feel for them.”Wagaman is an 11-year employee at The Pub.
