LOCAL HAITIAN RELIEF EFFORTS CONTINUE IN THE BAY AREA DESPITE THE SLOW DECLINE IN DONATIONS AROUND THE WORLD
Planes Are Secured for Delivery of Goods from Local Organizations and Communities; Volunteers Will Gather at N-E-Where Transport To Sort Supplies and Load Trucks
Tampa, Florida - February 5,2010 - Kalos International, Children With a Vision, The Haitian Education Foundation and N-E-Where Transport will join together again to collect items for Haiti Survivors. The volunteers will pack one to two truck loads to be driven to Miami and shipped by plane/boat to the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. Last Friday, nearly 35 volunteers packed medical supplies, non-perishable food items, hygiene products and water onto a large truck for the victims. The items were taken to Miami and crew flown into Haiti on planes last Saturday. N-E-Where Transport has donated a warehouse as a drop off location and storage facility. They've also donated their trucks to transport the collected items to Miami. Despite the reduction of giving, local community groups will continue their relief efforts with another large drive on February 5, 2010 from 10pm-6pm at N-E-Where Transport (3808 E. MLK Blvd.).
