Hurricane Matthew Relief Efforts Continue in Haiti
HIGH POINT -- Two brothers with the Triad Haitian Community Association are back from Haiti.
Marc Simon and Woodson Simon flew to the Caribbean island earlier this month to drop off boxes of clothes and other necessities following Hurricane Matthew's devastation last fall.
“I didn't realize how much the people needed until after we got there,” said Marc Simon with the Triad Haitian Association.
The association, which is comprised of a handful of Haitians in the Triad, began asking for donations after the hurricane plowed through destroying homes and killing people.
Not only did the community donate clothes but also roughly $2,500. Woodson Simon says that money was used to ship the boxes over to Haiti as well as buy dry food.
“We tried to feed people, we couldn't satisfy everybody but we did what we could,” Woodson Simon said.
Woodson Simon added he and the association want to do more. That includes flying back to Haiti this summer.
“We just want to keep going, bring dry food for them like rice, beans, spaghetti, Oreos."
The association is asking the public again to fulfill the dry goods request.
Donations can be dropped off at 1517 Blandwood Drive High Point, NC 27260.
The association asks you to call one of these numbers listed below to notify the brothers about your contribution.
