In collaboration with Palm Beach County Cares, State Rep. Matt Willhite’s office is helping collect much-needed emergency supplies for Haiti.
Palm Beach County Cares includes a diverse group of concerned citizens, public figures and business owners in Palm Beach County coming together to help people in Haiti recover from the aftermath of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck the island on Aug. 12.
“The people of Haiti have endured a terrible natural disaster,” Willhite said. “Palm Beach County Cares has a record of service. They have sent supplies to Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, and now, we need to come together to help Haiti. I am proud that my office has the capacity to serve as a donation drop-off location.”
The top categories of emergency supplies needed are: shelter materials, water, canned/nonperishable food, medical supplies, first aid kits, hygiene items and toiletry kits. Supplies can be dropped off at Willhite’s district office, located at 12133 Ken Adams Way, Suite 300, in Wellington. Before dropping off supplies, call Willhite’s office at (561) 791-4071 to schedule your drop off.
