The students and faculty at my school are putting together survival kits that will be sent to Haiti. The IOCC (the International Orthodox Christian Charities) is sending these kits to Haiti. They keep these kits on hand at all times (not just for the crisis in Haiti) as tragedy occurs way too often. If you are able to put some kits together please send them to the address listed below. I am sure they have depleted their supply and they will need to replenish their kits for future events. The link below has more details about this project and charity.
Buy a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure and fill it with the following items:
- One hand towel
- One washcloth
- One comb
- One metal nail file or nail clipper
- One bar of soap (bath size, new and wrapped in original packaging)
- One toothbrush (NO TOOTHPASTE)
- Six Band-Aids
- Our school added deodorant and toothpaste
Secure the bag and pack it in a box. Secure the box with packing tape.
Clearly mark the outside of the box with the type of kit (“Health Kit-IOCC”) and number of kits that are enclosed. Apply the correct amount of postage and mail the box to the following address:
IOCC / Church World Service
