The W.E. Aubuchon Company has announced that it will join the massive effort around the world to assist in  earthquake relief for Haiti. The company will utilize its distribution center, located in Westminster, Mass., as a final collection point for supplies. The supplies will then be distributed to a location in Colorado Springs, Colo., from which they will be shipped to Haiti.

The Aubuchons have been in contact with a coordinator from God’s Littlest Angels (http://godslittlestangelsinhaiti.org), one of the orphanages in Haiti that is in desperate need of supplies for the children. Some of the items needed are: baby diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, baby rice cereal and infant/childrens vitamins.

The company also hopes to be able to assist the surrounding community with clothing, medical supplies, household items, hygiene items such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, blankets and towels.

Anyone wishing to help should purchase any of the above items and bring them to the local Aubuchon Hardware store in Belfast by Monday, Feb. 15. For store directions visit HardwareStore.com.

Donors may also purchase supplies online and ship your order to: Aubuchon Hardware, Attn: Haiti Collection, 95 Aubuchon Drive, Westminster, MA 01473.
