Fairfax Dems Helping Haiti
Please help us fill a cargo container for Haiti by July.
The earthquake in Haiti caused the largest natural disaster in the past 35 years, killing more than 250,000 people, injuring over 300,000, and leaving over 1,000,000 homeless. Many of the people in Haiti have lost everything and are still living in tents with no electricity.
Antoine and Addie Cornet live in Fairfax County and come from Haiti. They both rushed there right after the earthquake and began working to help survivors in and around Port-au-Prince. Because of the great work by the Fairfax County Firefighters, Antoine’s medical license from Fairfax County gave him and his group access through road blocks to help under served areas of Haiti.
Antoine and Addie are back in Fairfax working to fill a cargo container with much-needed long-term supplies for the people of Haiti. They need many simple things we take for granted. The Fairfax County Democratic Party is collecting items to fill the cargo container for Haiti the weeks of May 24 to June 15. Please bring your items boxed and labeled to: 2815 Hartland Rd, Suite 110, Falls Church, VA 22043 (map: http://tinyurl.com/fcdc-hq) from 10 am to 4 pm or call to make other arrangements: 703.573.6811.
Please print this flier and share it at your work, school, place of worship, and with your friends and neighbors.
