Georgia Latter-day Saints Pack Tools for Haiti

A Home Depot donation of $2 million in tools and accessories and the volunteer efforts of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Georgia will help some Haitians rebuild after last month's devastating earthquake.

Habitat for Humanity, working through Hands On Atlanta, sent out an urgent call for volunteers to assemble 8,000 basic tool kits for the people of Haiti. The kits are designed to help Haitian families make immediate repairs and construct emergency shelters before the rainy season hits. Kit materials include a bucket, a tarpaulin, wire, rope, a pry bar, mason's chisel and trowel, gloves, nails, hammer and a saw. The kits will be distributed by Habitat employees and partners.
