Petaluma Bounty volunteer Alexandra Appel has been watching a story about Physicians for Peace carefully and her desire to do something of value has culminated in organizing a drive to collect crutches for Haiti. She has contributed the first set. Physicians for Peace (www.physiciansforpeace.org) will ship the crutches into Haiti. Physicians for Peace has been in Haiti working with amputees prior to the earthquake.
As a result of the earthquake, the number of amputees, both children and adults, is staggering, the need for crutches overwhelming. Please bring donated crutches to the Aqus Café on Friday February 12 from 1pm-2pm or you can make arrangements with Alexandra for a pick up. Small donations to cover the cost of packaging and shipping to Physicians for Peace in Virginia will also be greatly appreciated.
To make pick up arrangements or if you have any questions, please contact Alexandra at (707) 992-0027 or email her at [email protected].
