Columbus Hope for Haiti

Support “Columbus Hope for Haiti” City and Local Media Join Forces to Raise Funds for American Red Cross

01.20.2010 –Join Mayor Michael B. Coleman, the American Red Cross of Greater Columbus and Central Ohio media outlets for a special one-day 
fundraiser to benefit Haiti relief efforts in the wake of last week’s devastating earthquake and today’s strong aftershock.

“Columbus Hope for Haiti” is this Thursday, January 21, from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. 
at the Ohio Historical Society parking lot located just off of I-71, at Exit 111.

“When tragedy strikes, Columbus unites in prayer and support for people in 
trouble, and there is no doubt that the situation in Haiti demands our attention,” 
said Mayor Coleman. “We are urging everyone to take a few moments
 to stop by and give what they can to help hurry aid to Haiti through our partners
 at the American Red Cross – it could not be easier than stopping this week at 
Columbus Hope for Haiti at the Historical Society.”
