Supplies & Donations Needed for Haiti Mission Trip – Updated
Our next Haiti Mission trip is coming up fast. I & our team from Eagle Pointe church, as well as a team from Mountain Lake church, will head back to Port Au Prince/Carrefour on Oct. 8 – 15. Our team will be providing basic medical care in areas where there is none. We are also providing feeding programs, working with an orphanage, & building a church & school. ***See VIDEO at bottom of this post of some of the work we’re doing.
Below is a list of donations (supplies & money) which are desperately needed right away. Please help us spread the word to locate volunteers to go, donations, & supplies.
Small toys, dolls, etc to giveaway to children (LOTS of small items are easier to pack in suitcases & can cover more kids – ‘happy meal size’ is ideal)
Candy to giveaway to children (lg bags of smaller pieces)
Multi-Vitamins (Children & Adult)
Kids shoes (***Due to wet/muddy environment – “Crocs” style shoes are best)
Money – fundraised: (Items bought in Haiti)
$3000 – Construction supplies for school & church
$600 – local laborers to assist w/ construction
$2500 – food for feeding programs (local church & while we are there)
