Major Earthquake Hits Haiti


Chicagoans and those in the Evanston, IL area can donate rescue items to Haitian victims from the 7.0 earthquake that happened around 5 p.m. on Tues., Jan. 12. Two donating locations in the Chicagoland area are Soul Vegetarian Restaurant and the Haitian Congress to Fortify Haiti.


Haitian people have been left homeless, and some have died from this fatal earthquake. CNN reported that there is "heavy damage and bodies in the streets of the capital, Port-au-Prince, where concrete-block homes line steep hillsides." No estimates on deaths were given on Tuesday.


Donations can be made to the Haitian Congress to Fortify Haiti, a local non-profit, group online, at Charter One Bank in Evanston or by mailing a donation to the Haitian Congress to Fortify Haiti at 1227 Dodge Ave., Evanston, IL 60202.


Soul Vegetarian Restaurant is also a drop-off location for donations and humanitarian aid. Non-perishable vegan/vegetarian food items like baby food, milk, cereal, rice, clothes, bottled water, clothes, bedding, sleeping bags, tents, medical supplies and other items will be accepted.


Collections for Soul Vegetarian Restaurant will be on the International Side of the building, also known as the "C" side.
