Ways to Help in Haiti

Wondering what you can do to help
the suffering in Haiti?  Here are some practical suggestions.


Make a CWS Kit 


For those seeking
additional ways beyond donations, Church World Service, a key
relief partner of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is
providing hygiene, infant and medical kits. These kits are
assembled by volunteers and shipped to people in need.   For
individuals or groups wanting to assemble kits, visit the link
listed.  Kits can be dropped off at the Religious & Spiritual
Life Office in the first floor of Jarvis Hall at TCU. http://www.churchworldservice.

Stay Aware and Involved – Various departments and
student groups will be coordinating their own efforts in the months
ahead. Post what you’re doing at the Facebook group “Horned Frogs
Reaching Out to Haiti” or email
faith@tcu.edu to receive occasional updates and let us know what
you’re doing.

Volunteer Locally – by getting involved with our
local Chisholm Trail American Red Cross chapter, you join others
who provide assistance during various disasters and relief efforts.
 This can include providing safety and health services,
transportation, education, disaster services and much more.  Click
here to volunteer http://chisholmtrail.redcross. org or email
faith@tcu.edu if you’re interested in Red Cross volunteering and
training with others at TCU.
