Circle of Friends Haiti project wish list

December 16, 2011 § 1 Comment

My girlfriend Tori and I are headed to Haiti shortly after Christmas to spend a couple of weeks volunteering at an orphanage operated by a project called Circle of Friends. In advance of our trip, the folks in Haiti working at the orphanage sent us a list of supplies they’re in need of. If anyone cares to donate some money, clothing, or supplies from this list, it would be a huge help. We’ll bring them down to the orphanage who will put them to good use.

I realize it’s the holiday season and many people have probably already put a big dent in their bank accounts shopping for loved ones, but if you can spare some money or any of the following supplies, you’d make some difficult lives much easier:

  • Ryobi 18v power drill kit with a small set of wood and concrete drills and a small set of assorted drill bits. (Estimated cost: $175)
  • For Kids (used, washed) clothes: we need most urgently, 3 Boys: Ages 4, 10,12; underpants, sweatshirts, sweatpants, T-shirts, shorts, and pants. Crocs. The kids are typically a bit smaller than kids the same age in USA.
  • Women: Size 12/14 and size 10, sweatshirts, sweatpants, shirts/teeshirts, winter hats.
  • Toys/education materials; writing pads, notebooks, crayons, any mind stimulating toys.
  • For House:  some cheap towels, washcloths and twin sheets.
  • Large bottle of Aleve and Ibuprophen and children’s multi-vitamins.
Any and all help is appreciated. If you live in Central Vermont or the Burlington, Vermont area, we can likely arrange to pick up the items. If you can help, please email taylor.dobbs(at)gmail(dot)com.
