St. Martin sends love kits to Haiti

ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) – Children at St. Martin East Elementary School remember what it was like when Hurricane Katrina battered their homes. So when they heard about the problems facing children in Haiti, the St. Martin kids got to work.

On Friday, the students filled 12 boxes with what are being called Haiti Love Kits. Each box contains bags of hygiene products, toys, and personal notes. In those notes, the children here emphasized to Haiti earthquake victims that they haven't been forgotten.

The St. Martin collection drive will make it possible for nearly 350 Haitians to receive south Mississippi's love.

Similar relief efforts have been done at other schools across the region.

The International Relief and Development group will ship the St. Martin gift down to Haiti.
