Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones and World Vision to deliver relief aid to Haiti this weekend
World Vision Haiti will distribute the goods throughout several cities in Haiti. The delegation will help distribute the first round of emergency supplies to children and families in Cabaret. World Vision Haiti has already provided emergency aid to more than 12, 000 people in Haiti in the form of food, clothing, water, shelter materials, cooking utensils and medicine.
The City of Miami and Dolphin Stadium joined forces with the Florida Marlins, Miami Dolphins Miami Hurricanes, the University of Miami, and the City of Miami Fire Department to collect food and clothing to aid hurricane victims in Haiti as part of “Operation: Hope for Haiti.” In addition, all financial contributions are being donated to World Vision’s relief efforts in Haiti.
“Operation: Hope for Haiti” was created in response to the devastation left behind in Haiti after the country was hit by several hurricanes over the past month. Tens of thousands of people remain in need of food, water and emergency assistance.
If you would like to donate food or clothing to “Operation: Hope for Haiti,” collection bins will be set up at Dolphin Stadium during all home games until December 14, 2008. The last day to drop off donated goods at the City of Miami fire stations is Friday, September 19.
