Latino community raises money for Haiti relief

On Monday, Jan. 25, a ceremony took place at the American Red Cross, Sadie Fowler Disaster Center, to present a check for more than $40,000 to the American Red Cross. 

The money was raised this past Sunday by the Latino community.  They worked with Jesus Ministry Inc., Norsan Radio Group and Alex Ruiz Productions to collect funds during a radio-thon at the Compare Foods Supermarkets in Charlotte, Monroe and Gastonia. 

All of the money, raised in one day, will go toward helping the people in Haiti.

Pamela Jefsen, CEO of the Greater Carolinas Chapter, said, “We are in awe of how the Latino community came together this weekend to raise money for American Red Cross response efforts in Haiti.”
