Tent and Tarp Drive in Madison and Oregon a Success!
The tent and tarp drive we started over a week and a half ago has come to an end. The supplies have been collected, organized and sent. Read on below about the drive, who contributed, the totals and to see pictures.
About the Drive
We conducted a tent and tarp drive from Thursday the 18th through Thursday the 25th of February. We have guaranteed shipping to Haiti and distribution. Tents and tarps are being trucked to the headquarters of God Littlest’s Angels Orphanage in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The tents and tarps will join their shipment of supplies already bound for Haiti scheduled to leave March 5th. The distribution of the tents and tarps will occur in Petionville, very near Port-au-Prince.
We would like to thank the following people and groups for all their help in making this drive possible:
Group Health Cooperative of Madison for helping to spearhead the drive.
All the people that helped out at the Drive Through Drive at Group Health Cooperative.
Mother Nature’s Diaper Service for the donation of nearly 1300 diapers.
Menards for their donation of tarps.
