Volunteers needed for sorting donations for Haiti this Sunday Jan 31

This Sunday Florida International University is calling out to all students, faculty and staff and anyone willing to give of their time. This event will be held between 9am and 1pm at the Miami-Dade County Warehouse at 11500 NW 25th Street in Doral. Volunteers are needed to help sort and package relief supplies for Haiti. Volunteers will assist Miami-Dade County in sorting 160 tons of donated food, water, medical supplies and clothing.

All supplies are being transported and distributed in Haiti by Food for the Poor and Project Medishare, both are non-profit organizations that are on the ground in Haiti providing the very much needed food and medical relief.

FIU President Mark Rosenberg will be there Sunday morning to lead the hands-on effort. Joining him will be Board of Trustees member and alumnus Albert Maury ‘96 ’02, president and chief operating officer of Leon Medical Centers Health Plan, which is assisting FIU with transportation.

Charles Cyrille, the manager of the Infrastructure and Recovery Bureau of the Department of Emergency Management says, “The more people you send, the quicker it gets done, There is a lot to do. There’s never enough people.”

If you would like to volunteer you need to register at To coordinate transportation you can do so when you register.
