Tents for Haiti

Passing the word along for New City Fellowship and R3International:

In Jacmel, Haiti some 2,000 people have lost their homes and are sleeping in a field. An organization there has a plan for transitional and long term housing, but there is an immediate need for tents. We have offered to collect 650 tents and deliver them to Jacmel within the next week. We need your help. Please consider donating a new or unused 2 pole 3-4 person tent, along with $10 to help cover shipping. Tents can be delivered to us or to New City
(2412 E.4th St,Chattanooga TN 37404). Checks can be made out to New City, with Haiti tents in the memo. If you are unable to send a tent, please consider sending $50 to cover the cost of a tent. We need to move quickly!

*Friends who don't attend New City: if you would like, you can bring the tents (or checks made out to New City Fellowship) to Vincent and I and we can pass them along to the church.*
