New Haiti Relief Drop Off Site

A new drop off site to help victims of the Haiti earthquake has been set up in Kinston.

The Harvest Connection Disaster Relief Ministry set up the site to collect donations.

Organizers say although there was an outpouring of support in the beginning, as time goes on, people forget about the constant need for aid.

The group is sending boxes of hygiene and bedding products to Seymour Johnson Air Force base in Goldsboro to be flown to Haiti.

The Harvest Connection Disaster Relief facility is located in Kinston at the old Smithfield Packing site on Vernon Avenue. The office is open Monday through Thursday.

    Did I miss anything? Did we have massive donating schemes, huge star-studded concerts, item drop offs out the wazoo for the earthquake in Chile? Is the Chilean earthquake not "heart-string tugging" enough to deserve all the avenues of donation methods?

    Here is a thought. How many homeless starving people are there in the USA? Hundreds, thousands, millions who knows nobody seems to care. But let something bad happen in a country that don't give a rats a$$ about the USA and people will pour money and resources at an unlimited pace into that country. Where are they going to be when America needs them? Lets fix our problems first. Make that dropoff site for the homeless in Kinston and see how much response you get! Did any other country help when Floyd tore threw the eastern U.S.? NO! Any help for Louisana, Mississippi and Florida when Kitrina hit? NO!
