Urgent call for tents

Do you have a tent you would like to donate to help the people of Haiti?

There are over 100,000 people without homes in Haiti. Port-au-Prince is in ruins; everywhere there are vast cities of makeshift tents built of sticks, bed sheets and bits of plastic occupying any clear space. One of the most immediate needs is temporary shelter to protect from mosquitoes, heat and rain. The rainy season in Haiti is imminent.

If you have a quality, family-style tent or light-weight sleeping bag(s) in relatively good condition that you would like to donate to the Haitian people, a Pepperell resident is collecting them and delivering them to other volunteers connected with Partners in Health to get them to Haiti. Please contact Karen at 978.433.8239 or email her at karenm_807@msn.com for more information.

There is no deadline but please donate these items as soon as possible so we can make the most of every shipment.
