Locals continue their support of Haiti

VESTAVIA HILLS, AL (WBRC) - United Methodist churches across North Alabama are apart of an ongoing relief effort to help earthquake survivors in Haiti who are left with nothing.

At Vestavia Hills UMC, an assembly line of volunteers packed 200 health kits for earthquake victims.   

Everyday items we take for granted like towels, soap, toothbrushes and combs were put into bags, boxed, and will be shipped to Haiti.

Stella Langley brought her two children along to take part in this effort.

"For my children I really want to them to start learning at a young age how important it is to give back to community," said Stella Langley. "To realize it's a circle that we give when we can give and when we are in need someone else is going to step up and help us too."    

Three-thousand kits have already been sent by United Methodist churches.

Church members will meet next week to put together more health kits.
