Tents For Haiti Relief Effort

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Daybreakers:

I learned just this afternoon of a large Rotary meeting held last week in Houston regarding Rotary Disaster Response.  There were several Rotarians there from Haiti, Dominican Republic, and elsewhere in Carribean.

 

Much is being done, but they determined that a critical need is TENTS.    They are hoping to gather 200,000 tents from Rotarians around the U.S. mainly....    There is some urgency.  I'm told the rains come to Haiti in about 2 months.

 

We'll start with clubs collecting... gather them by district... and ship them to Florida.  Leigh Readdy of D-5030 has been working with the USAF and USN for some time and believes we can get the tents to Florida via USAF.  Current thinking is the US Navy will deliver to Haiti and the Rotarians in Haiti and Dominican Republic will take it from there.

 

Tents just need to be serviceable - and complete.  I'm looking for the old family tent that's been in the garage for 8 years... the old scout tent that nobody's used in years.  

 

If we can collect some tents, I will store them until we get a bunch and then turn them over to Leigh Readdy.  Northwest Harvest has agreed to provide us some warehouse space in Kent if we succeed in gathering several thousand tents.  Just need to start!

 

Thank you very much.
