January 21st, 2010    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: News

The United Way is providing ways to help Haiti through United Way Worldwide.

Individuals, companies and organizations interested in helping people affected by the earthquake in Haiti with a monetary donation can donate through the United Way Worldwide Disaster Fund at https://volunteer.united-e-way.org/uwwwdisaster/donate/ or link through www.uwgc.org/helphaiti.

The fund is focusing on long-term recovery efforts to rebuild lives and infrastructure devastated by the disaster and to address educational, financial and health-related challenges.

Those whishing to help can also text HAITI to UNITED (864833) or mail checks to the following address, with the Fund referenced in either memo line or enclosed correspondence: United Way Worldwide, P.O. Box 630568, Baltimore MD 21263-0568.

In-kind donations are also critically important. For information, see www.aidmatrix.org. United Way Worldwide is working with many others in the region to assess the damage and determine exactly what resources will be needed to begin the rebuilding process. United Way Worldwide will be working with United Way Puerto Rico and other United Ways in the region on coordination of in-kind donations.
