Haiti Crisis- How You Can help!

Many of you are wondering how you can help with the earthquake crisis:


-- We will be redirecting the $1,100 that was already previously given to
the Haiti notebook project and giving that money to Heart to Heart Intl. for
use in this intense crisis. Heart to Heart Intl is currently on the ground
in Haiti providing assistance and medical care as we speak.

-- We will also be collecting Crisis Care Kits. You can contribute to these kits two ways:

1) Complete a kit. Get together with your division/school, friends, co-workers, etc. to create a complete kit. Check out this link for EXACT instructions on what can/cannot go into a kit.

2) You may donate individual supplies for the kits: (ALL supplies must be NEW)

-- hand towels
-- washcloths
-- wide-tooth combs
-- small bottles of shampoo
-- new individually wrapped toothbrushs
-- travel size tubes of toothpaste
-- adhesive bandages
-- individually wrapped bath size bars of soap
-- plastic travel soap dishes
-- one-gallon size zipper seal bags

If you choose to donate individual supplies, please bring them by the MNU ServiceCorps Office by Friday, Jan. 29th. Please do not donate any additional items that are not on this list, as the contents of these kits have already been approved for customs clearance.
