Emergency Clothing Drive in Brooklyn for Haiti Earthquake Victims

I received the e-mail below as a forward from a friend, and wanted to pass on the information to anyone interested- sorry for the late notice! Please stop by if you're free!

As we all turn our thoughts and prayers to our brothers and sisters in Haiti, this message comes to you in the same spirit of humanity, seeking to help, assist, and serve. The men of Epsilon Chapter, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. have organized an emergency clothing drive which will take place on MONDAY JANUARY 18th from 11am-4pm in Brooklyn, NY. We are asking for any gently used clothing or new underclothes that can be sent to assist those in need and help with the overall disaster relief effort.

This is not a Que thing. It's not a Greek thing. It's the right thing to do. All are welcome. Feel free to represent your frat, sorority, university, block association, or just come as you are. The most important thing is getting a substantial amount of donations to help make a difference. What better service on Dr. King's birthday than to help those in such dire need?
The address is:
The Academy for Business and Community Development
141 Macon St. (Macon at Marcy Ave.)
Brooklyn, NY

All we ask for is for a little bit of your time and a few articles of clothing. Please let's make this happen. Forward to as many networks as you can so that we can generate a great response.

Hope to see you Monday,
