Help Is Needed: Earthquake devastates Haiti
Yesterday, a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti just outside of Port-au-Prince (the country's capital). Although the amount of casualties are unknown at this moment, thousands are without food, clothing, shelter and medical care. So many have come together already including nationwide/international organizations as well as communities throughout the United States. Please play a part in helping Haiti duiring this tragic time. It does not have to be monetary. Donate your time and effort, clothing, or food. All help is appreciated.
