Local Haitian Relief Effort



There are many ways to participate in help for the Haitian people, but if you are seeking a way to contribute to the relief effort for Haiti, here's a way via a reliable local organization:
With all the news on the crisis that the survivors are dealing with in Haiti, I wanted to inform you there is a way to reach out to Haiti immediately. There is a missions team called Agape Flights located in our own back yard on old 301 – they have planes which are flying to Haiti with supplies to meet immediate needs. If you wish to bring these items in – I will be happy to collect them and drop them off at their location. Bring supplies to Lynn Evensen located in SMC C305 or gather them in your areas and I will be happy to pick them up.
