GREENBURGH MUSICAL FUNDRAISER AT TOWN HALL LOBBY RAISES ABOUT $2600 FOR HAITI EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS
FUNDRAISER SUNDAY AT DOUBLETREE TO RAISE FUNDS FOR 24 YEAR OLD HAITI VICTIM WHOSE LEG WAS AMPUTATED
AFYA LOOKING FOR TENTS, SLEEPING BAGS FOR HAITI VICTIMS--LET'S HELP VICTIMS SET UP TEMPORARY VILLAGES
AFYA ALSO LOOKING FOR PILOTS TO FLY SUPPLIES TO HAITI
On Friday, January 29th the lobby of the Greenburgh Town Hall was the scene of a unique fundraiser for the victims of the horrible Haiti earthquake. Musicians donated their talents and performed in the lobby of Town Hall from 11 AM to after 6 PM. The effort was organized by Town Clerk Judith Beville. We raised about $2600 for the victims. All proceeds will go to Afya--an organization based in Yonkers (and founded by Danielle Butin of Hastings) that sends medical supplies to Haiti. The Greenburgh police dept also donated unneeded supplies to the cause.
This Sunday another organization will be hosting a fundraiser at the Doubletree hotel in Tarrytown to raise funds to help a young man from Haiti whose leg was amputated receive a new leg. Please read the e mail cinthia gullotta of Tarrytown sent to me--asking for help in publicizing the effort.
ALSO--AFYA desperately needs pilots to help fly supplies to Haiti. If you are a pilot or know people who fly --ask them if they would like to help.
We can all make a difference.
-----Original Message-----I host a radio program on WVOX every Friday morning. Danielle Butin was my guest and advised me that Afya is looking for TENTS and SLEEPING BAGS. Many victims of Haiti are without shelter. Afya and other organizations are trying to help create temporary villages. If you would like to donate a tenant/sleeping bag you can drop the items off at Town Hall and Afya will pick it up. Please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to donate these specific items. One community helping another.

Letter from Dave he just got back from Haiti last night 3:00am. Who is up to
make this miracle happen, I am. Any since you all are my friends we can come
together to make it happen. Please stop by the Doubletree hotel in Tarrytown
NY on Sunday at 4:30pm to give what you can. We will make this dream come
Good morning Matthew,
Thank you so much for all the medical supplies your wowgreen distributors
and friends collected for the mission to Haiti. We were able to treat
literally hundreds of people in dire need of medical attention. We were also
able to supply hospitals, clinics and doctors with much needed supplies. The
total amont of supplies we were able to bring in was amazing. We had 34
bags, four feet tall weighing between sixty and ninety pounds each.
I am excited about the fund raising opportunity on Sunday Jan 31st at the
Doubletree Hotel in Westchester NY in Tarrytown NY. We have a 24 year old
amputee that we were able to bring back with us and we have immediate needs
for him. We took him to God Samaritan Hospital this morning after landing.
He will be there just a couple of days and then he will need to start
rehabilitation immediately. I made him a promise of a new leg and it is
going to take the help of many to make it happen.
Please pass this on to as many peopl as possible. It is going to take
the help of many peole to give this young man a miracle.
