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.
Because of the prohibitive cost of shipping, we are asking that anyone still wishing to donate kits (or materials for kits) send them directly to our Miami office.
