This Saturday, at the intersection of Aldus Street and Southern Boulavard, Bronx residents (and others) can drop off clothes, non-perishable food, and money, to help the victims of yesterday's earthquake in Haiti.
The aid drive is being organized by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., State Sen. Ruben Diaz, Sr., and the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization. It starts at 12 p.m.
In a statement, Diaz, Jr. said:
Tragedy has struck the Haitian people and as a community The Bronx is ready to give them a hand. I am calling on all Bronxites to show solidarity and support, making donations through our office at Saturday’s event or through any of the many relief organizations available. In difficult times, we all can make a big difference with donations, even small donations, that will help to provide food, water and medicine to the victims of this terrible natural disaster.For more information, call Diaz, Jr.'s office at (718) 590-6001.
