What we need to make kits

GSO-MLKDay

Making kits for distribution to Haiti.  Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 2010.

Because the need in the community varies by season and circumstance, our needs also change.  Contact Ann Lennon at alennon@afsc.org for more updated information for what our current needs are.  As of late July, 2010 our greatest need is now for hygiene kits. 

Humanitarian Aid: Friends Humanitarian Response Program in High Point

GSO-MLKDay

Making kits for distribution to Haiti.  Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 2010.

The High Point office of the American Friends Service Committee runs the Friends Humanitarian Response Program (FHRP, formerly EMAP), which provides material assistance to those in need.  Much of our support comes from local Friends Meetings that provide us with the material we distribute.  We have some resources available for those who wish to knit or sew supplies for distribution.

Thanks for making our MLK Volunteer Day for Haiti a huge success!

On January 18th, AFSC's Greensboro office held a volunteer day to make disaster relief kits for Haiti.  Thanks to the enormous turnout we had, it was a huge success!  We were covered by many news outlets, some of which are linked below.

We made nearly twice as many kits as we expected for Haiti -- final count is 97 -- and also produced over 70 kits for local use.  We think this is a great way to demonstrate the way that issues of poverty and economic justice cross borders, and affect us here in the Triad.
