Tile Partners for Humanity to help with Haitian relief efforts
The following is a special request from Lynn Labuda, Executive Director, Tile Partners for Humanity (TPFH):
”We have all seen over the past few weeks the devastation as a result of the earthquake in Haiti. Several of our industry partners have proactively stepped forward to ask what TPFH is doing to assist in the disaster relief efforts in Haiti, and how they can participate. TPFH is currently working with Operation Compassion (www.operationcompassion.org) in this effort.
Dave Lorency at Operation Compassion (www.operationcompassion.org) has set a goal of at least 300 to 400 semi loads of tile to stage in Cleveland, TN, containerize and start shipping to Haiti sometime in March after the phase one cleanup is complete. They will need at least 75 to 100 loads of tile installation materials and tools to install the tile. Dave is willing to give as much publicity as necessary to whomever is willing to pitch in with materials and/or transportation of the materials to the Cleveland, TN staging location.”
For more information or to donate supplies, contact Lynn Labuda at (770) 416-0200.
