A Canfield High School senior is spearheading a project to purchase a water well for a part of Haiti damaged by the 2010 earthquake.

Boy Scout Nick Crescimanno is hosting “Yell for the Well” music festival as part of his Eagle Scout project.

Crescimanno said it will take about $5,300 to purchase a water well, and he hopes the remaining funds he needs will come during the concert set for next weeekend at St. Michael church in Canfield.

“I was touched back when there was the earthquake in Haiti,” said Crescimmano. “We had a man come to our church and spoke on behalf of the Haitian people. He lost a couple of  family members in that earthquake. I was touched by that.”

“Yell for the Well” will feature several local bands. The event is scheduled for Sunday, August 4 from noon to 8 p.m. at St. Michael Church, 350 N. Broad St., Canfield.
