Res­i­dents Can Help On Haiti Re­lief Ef­fort

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - News -

Cen­tral Oahu res­i­dents can join the global re­sponse to Haiti’s dev­as­tat­ing earth­quake by do­nat­ing blood lo­cally and send­ing money to the Red Cross.

Checks made out to Amer­i­can Red Cross can be mailed to ARC, Hawaii state chap­ter, at 4155 Di­a­mond Head Road, Honolulu HI 96816, with a memo to “Haiti re­lief ef­fort.”

Cus­tomers can text “Haiti” to 90999 on their cell phones to send a $10 do­na­tion (which will be re­flected on their phone bill). Res­i­dents also may do­nate to the ARC In­ter­na­tional Re­sponse Fund at www.redcross.org or by call­ing 1-800-RED-CROSS.

The Red Cross also is get­ting units of blood and blood prod­ucts to the shat­tered is­land na­tion for evac­uees and pa­tients. For de­tails on do­nat­ing blood, call Hawaii Blood Bank at 845-9966. (See page 8 for area blood drives.)
