Needs from Haiti

School Supplies for HaitiImage by Bona_Responds via FlickrI have heard from some groups in Haiti.  First of all they have not yet received our last shipment.  I will have to check on that.  We used a different way to ship this time and it seemingly is taking longer (but was cheaper!). 

Things they asked for:

  • More school supplies (really loved the calculators some sent last time). Also pens, crayons, pencils, etc.
  • Basketballs and soccer balls were also mentioned.  (Since the quake we have sent about 300 soccer balls)
  • A basketball net (I wonder if they meant rim and net?)
  • Musical instruments (any kind, but really want Saxaphone, trumpet) and sheet music
  • A new trade school would LOVE tools.  Hammers, drills, tape measures, etc., pretty much anything.  I requested pictures of what they have now and will share when I receive them.

Items can be dropped off at Park and Shop Allegany (24 N 1st) or to the upstairs business secretary in Murphy Building on the West side of St. Bonaventure. 

Also our spin-off HaitiScholarships.org is trying to fund up to 50 students to go to school in Haiti Classes start there this fall and any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated!
