Haiti Relief: After the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday, North Hills efforts will be paired with the efforts of Horne Memorial United Methodist Church in Clayton for Haitian Relief. North Hills will serve as a collection location for specific supplies that are needed immediately in Haiti (see lists below). With missionaries and medical personnel from HMUMC already located in Haiti, there is an effective plan in place for disseminating the collected items upon their arrival. They will be continually collecting and shipping to Haiti. North Hills will collect items this weekend; Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 12pm-4pm on the Commons. Look for the bright yellow tents. In case of rain, the collection location will be moved inside the space located between Learning Express and Lenscrafters.
If you would like to volunteer to help collect items this weekend, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
