Gainesville Woman Asks For Help Distributing Haiti Relief Supplies
After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, North Central Florida residents responded in a big way. But its one thing to collect the supplies, its another to get them where they are needed.
Sister Hazel is used to helping those in need. Now, she's asking for North Central Florida's help. Donations at the old Peaceful Paths building are literally piling up.
Since the earthquake in Haiti, Sister Hazel's facility has been the drop-off point for donations. Donations like clothes, water, food and medical supplies. She says she needs more support.
One University of Florida group, Club Creole, is pitching in by urging others to join in. Among the most pressing needs are boxes, and the manpower to deliver these supplies to Miami.
She says she has the ability to ship the supplies to the needy, but what she doesn't have is the help to get it there.
"We can not do it without your help," Sister Hazel said.
Judging by the amount of supplies already donated, Sister Hazel is confident residents will finish the job.
For those interested in helping Saturday, Sister Hazel's warehouse is located at 2131 NW 6th St.
