Haiti Supplies Needed for May 2011 Mission Trip

Here is an updated list of supplies needed for our Haiti mission trip. At the bottom is also a list of the money for projects we need to fund-raise between now & then. We leave on Monday May 30th!!! PLEASE help us round up these supplies & donations. We need these dropped off at Eagle Pointe by Saturday May 21st – so we can pack everything up & have it ready to go.

Also, if you are unable to bring items to Eagle Pointe – again, donations of money are definitely needed (we will be buying a lot of needed supplies in Haiti – easier than carrying it all & supports the local economy).
