CALDWELL – Students in the Public Health Education Club at Caldwell University have banded together to help victims in Haiti affected by Hurricane Matthew with a new “Shoes for Haiti” program.
The program officially kicked off on Friday, Nov. 4.
“Haiti is a very poor country and the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew has left it ruins,” said Naissa Piverger, vice president of the Public Health Education Club. “We would like to serve the residents and those are who in need of assistance, which is a public health concern. When the shoes are collected, my mother and other family members who lives in Haiti will do the distribution.”
Piverger said there are a total of 12 donation boxes, seven on campus at Caldwell University and five off campus. The seven boxes on campus can be found in Werner Hall, Dominican Hall, Rosary Hall, Mother Joseph Hall, the Newman Center, the Jennings Library and the campus cafeteria.
