Eastern Wake residents help in Haiti relief

Bookmark and Share

Eastern Wake County residents are helping with Haiti relief.

If you want to help, you can donate blankets, sheets, towels, wash cloths, food and tarps and health kids consisting of one hand towel, one wash cloth and one comb -- not pocket-sized.

You can drop these items off at Cause for Paws, 538 West Gannon Street, Zebulon, the Zebulon Community Center at 301 South Arendelll Avenue and the office of Zebulon United Methodist Church, 121 West Gannon Street.

The Wendell United Methodist Church also is collecting items for medical kits. Kits contain: one hand towel, one wash cloth, a comb, a tube of toothpaste and six adhesive plastics strip sterile bandages. All items should be placed in a sealed one-gallon plastic bag.

You can even get a hair cut and help the cause. Hairdresser Anne DiPilato will set up a salon Saturday, Jan. 23 at her church St. Eugene's Catholic, 608 Lion's Club Road.

Haircuts cost $10 and all the money goes to help earthquake victims through Catholic Relief Services.
