[ARCHIVED] The City of Malden Supports Haiti

Donations for Haiti

Last Tuesday the City of Malden held a Haiti Relief Donation Drive to benefit the victims of Haiti’s August earthquake which left millions devastated. The magnitude 7.2 earthquake left 2,207 dead and more than 12,000 injured along with the disastrous destruction of homes and buildings. The event was a collaboration among Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coordinator Bybiose Larochelle, Senior Center Coordinator Mikeneil Paul and Board of Health Community Communication Outreach Specialist Tamerlie Roc.

Throughout the festive event, City Hall staff and many Malden residents stopped by and generously donated thousands of toiletries and first aid items. Traditional music by DJery kept the crowd moving as did the delicious authentic Haitian food. Following remarks by Mikeneil Paul and greetings from Mayor Gary Christenson, a moment of silence was held for the victims followed by the raising of the Haitian flag. Sponsors included Mentor Adult Day Health, The Island Restaurant and J&R Restaurant. 

Donations will be accepted until September 14th when goods will be flown to Haiti to be distributed to those in need. Please drop donations to the Malden Senior Center, 7 Washington Street.
