Town of Lewisporte
September 11, 2001 changed the world forever. Gander and area played host to over 7,000 stranded airline passengers and crew who were ordered to land during that horrible time. Passengers were housed in schools, community centres and churches including the Town of Lewisporte. Since then, the Broadway production Come From Away tells the story of these men and women who opened their homes and hearts to strangers.
Come From Away recently donated money to some of the towns who helped during that time. The Town of Lewisporte paid it forward to the children of their community and donated $20,000 to their town’s three schools’ Breakfast Clubs. Thank you, Town of Lewisporte.
