Messiah community rallies to assemble relief kits and collect funds for disaster relief in Haiti

February 12th, 2010

In the weeks since a 7.0 magnitude earthquake devastated the island nation of Haiti, Messiah College students and employees have been participating in several initiatives to assist the impoverished country. Through a loose change drive and direct donations, more than $5,400 has been collected for Mennonite Central Committee.

In addition, a large storage container on campus already houses 145 relief kits for Mennonite Central Committee to ship to Haiti. The kits, containing a variety of personal hygiene items, are being assembled and donated by Messiah students and employees as well as central Pennsylvanians, thanks to a promotional effort by local television station ABC 27.
