Girl Scouts deliver HOPE for Haiti

The girl scouts of troop 2090 of East Hanover delivered clothing, food and toys to Terzako Furs in Caldwell, NJ on May 15, 2010. The donation was for the people of Haiti. The girls arrived at 1 PM, unpacked the vehicles and Nelson "Diego" Checo, Rotary's Dominican liaison in the Dominican for Haiti immediately started packing for a 3.30 PM shipment. Fifteen boxes or an approximate 2,625 lbs of goods were then shipped for distribution in Haiti.

After the delivery, Marianna Colivita, project leader, presented Kevin Hersh, President, Rotary Club of the Caldwells with a check for $275 collected by the Girl Scouts. Marianna also presented Kevin with an application for a matching grant from Kraft Foods for an additional $275 bringing the total donation to $550.

Kevin Hersh, Diego and Rotarian Mike Kambourakis gave the girls a brief history of the project and Rotarian Gerardo D'Emilio brought out photo books to show the girls how we are all making a difference to so many lives.

A big thank you goes out to Monte Erenkrantz of the Livingston Sunrise Rotary for making the arrangements to get the delivery to The Rotary Club of the Caldwells for "The Haiti Relief Effort."

The girls could not stay long, they had to leave for a scheduled softball game. We hope they Won, they deserved it. THANK YOU GIRL SCOUTS!
