Collecting Vitamins for Haiti

At the present time the students of Seeds of Independence are collecting vitamins for earthquake victims in Haiti. A group of adult and youth volunteers will deliver the vitamins when they leave March 27 on the organization's 11th annual trip to La Romana, in the Dominican Republic. Vitamins are critically needed as many earthquake survivors are suffering from malnutrition and related diseases. Vitamins or donations to buy them can be sent to Seeds of Independence, P.O. Box 8, Freeport, ME, 04032.

Tom Wright, the President of Seeds of Independence shared the following:  “We are going to the Dominican

Republic with a group of 40 on the 27th of March. We will be taking medical supplies that we will be

sending by truck over to Haiti. If any of your readers would like to donate supplies for the trip have them

let us know at this e-mail.  It is as direct aid as can be provided.

We will be taking 4000 pounds of supplies in total. We will also be accepting tax deductible donations from which we will buy food in the Dominican and send to Haiti on the medical truck.”
