Local church assembles health kids for Haiti victims

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock continues to show its support for victims in Haiti. A Lubbock congregation spent part of the morning making health kits to send to quake victims.

All of the members from First United Methodist Church helped assemble 1,000 kits Sunday morning. The kits include personal care items that are now in short supply.

Organizers say it's encouraging to see the congregation - especially the children - be a part of something that will have such an impact on the lives of those in Haiti. "We're making health kits that have tooth brushes, combs, soap, towels and wash clothes to send to Haiti for the earthquake," said Hanna Poindexter, a 12-year-old volunteer.

"It's heartbreaking. That county is in so much need anyway. Their infrastructure is terrible. The people there live, they're so impoverished and they. It's just so bad to start with there so it's very heartbreaking to think they lost what little they had," said Kristi Flake, a Missions Ministry intern.

The church will ship the packages to a distribution center in Louisiana and from there they will be sent to Haiti.
