Locals rally to help Haiti victims devastated by earthquake

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It's day three of the search and rescue efforts in Haiti after Tuesday's devastating earthquake that left the small nation in ruins. An estimated 50,000 have died from the massive quake and families continue to look for loved ones.

Here locally the city is rallying to give assistance to the victims in Haiti. "Those efforts involve being able to raise cash to make available to established agencies who can get the aid there the quickest and in a most effective way," said Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin.

The Lubbock Cares Fund involves Breedlove Dehydrated Foods, the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army. To make a donation to this fund and these agencies, you can go to any American State Bank to help those in Haiti.
