The following was a request that I just received:

In response to the devastating tragedy in Haiti, the YAL (Young Adult League) and OYP (Orthodox Young Professionals) have established a service project called OPERATION HAITI. They are collecting the following items, which will be sent directly to humanitarian aid groups on the ground in Haiti:

  • hand towels
  • washcloths
  • combs
  • metal nail files, nail clippers, and other grooming items
  • bars of soap (bath size, new and wrapped in original packaging)
  • toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash
  • Band-Aids
  • simple medical supplies (gauze, cotton balls, cotton swabs, gloves, etc.)
  • bottles of water
  • baby food
  • boxes to contain the above

They are mobilizing quickly, to package and send these items next week on February 2nd. These items can be dropped off – from now until MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1st – in the following locations:
