Humanitarian Services

Our hearts have all been broken over the tragedy in Haiti and many of us find ourselves wanting to donate money and wondering who to trust.

I have mentioned in here before that I am LDS, or a Mormon.  The humanitarian services from my church is known world wide and has provided aide for too many disasters to count.  2 hours after the news hit about the earthquake in Haiti, American Airlines contacted our Church Offices offering to donate 3 of their planes to transport anything we would like to send for relief.  We were able to fill all 3 cargo  holds with supplies including food, water, clothing, diapers, etc, all purchased through our Humanitarian Relief Fund.  This weekend an additional 85,000 lbs of supplies were trucked in from Miami, with more on the way.

If you are searching for a way to donate and have not found an organization that you feel comfortable with, please feel free to go to this link to find out more information and how to donate to the Humanitarian Services
