More than 350 volunteers worked throughout the week of January 17, 2010, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meetinghouse in North Miami Beach, Florida, sorting and boxing supplies to be sent to Haitian earthquake survivors.
Over 50,000 pounds of supplies including bottled water, canned food, diapers, baby formula, shoes, tents and other items were put in a 40 foot shipping container that will arrive in Haiti the first week in February. 40 pints of blood were also given to the Community Blood Center of South Florida.
This Miami humanitarian effort got started after Albert Benzion, president of the Miami Florida Lakes Stake, stayed up all night Jan. 12 watching news coverage of the earthquake disaster. Benzion said future plans include filling four more shipping containers in the weeks and months ahead as long as the need of supplies is needed in Haiti.
