Several of TPFH's industry partners have proactively stepped forward to ask what the organization is doing to assist in the disaster relief efforts in Haiti, and how they can participate.
The following is a special request from Lynn Labuda, Executive
Tile Partners for Humanity (TPFH):
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.
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
information or to donate supplies, contact Lynn Labuda at (770) 416-0200.
