The situation in Haiti is a serious humanitarian crisis.  The country is in need to ongoing assistance of all kinds.  The international community seems to have forgotten about the plight of the survivors of the devastating earthquake. 
Our Club participated in a joint project with the Rotary Club of Yonkers-East-Yonkers, one of the most dynamic clubs in the District - and the home Club of our District Governor.  The project aims to send urgent supplies of clothing, household items and other essentials to Haiti.  One of our Club members donated $200 for purchase of canned foods and another member donated clothing, shoes, books and household items.  All the items were packed in barrels by volunteers for shipment through a local Rotary Club in Haiti.
Every little bit helps.  We are a new Club but we are learning how to get involved in projects within our community as well as internationally.  The Club is grateful for the guidance received from our Club sponsor and our District Governor, as well as the practical assistance from the Yonkers-East Yonkers Club.
