Howard University Student-Athletes Rally to Aid Haiti

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Howard University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will hold a campaign during the Howard vs. Florida A&M basketball game this Saturday, January 23 at 2pm. The event will raise funds to assist the Embassy of Haiti in shipping the much needed donations from their recent relief drive to the earthquake ravished island.

SAAC President Gazelle d’ Artois, HU student-athletes and the Intercollegiate Athletics staff will collect $1.00 from each attendee at the Howard vs. Florida A&M basketball game, Saturday, January 23, 2010. The first 1,000 to make a donation will receive a “HU Supports Haiti” tee shirt.

Representatives from the Embassy of Haiti and The Haitian-American Professional Association are expected to deliver a message during halftime. The money will be donated to the Howard University Relief Fund.

Please come out to the game and support this important drive as we join the global effort to make a difference in the lives those adversely affected by the devastating earthquake.
