Salvation Army helps in Haiti

HAITI (WKOW) -- As resources are strained to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti, the Salvation Army is putting out a call for help.

Officials with the Salvation Army say the group had more than 700 people in Haiti when the earthquake hit January 12.

It is now working internationally with partners and vendors to send in bulk food, pre-packaged meals, bottled water, tents, lanterns and other supplies, along with several 15,000-gallon water purification units and multiple mobile hospitals.

Once the emergency situation becomes stabilized, Salvation Army officials say their teams will  turn their attention to rebuilding orphanages, schools and medical clinics.

Donations to the earthquake relief effort can be made by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY with your credit card donation or by donating online at salvationarmyusa.org   Please label the gift "Haiti Relief."
