Fire Fighters and Paramedics IAFF Local 1619 Conduct Haiti Relief Collection

A steady stream of cars filled with people wanting to make a difference and help the victims of the Haiti earthquake lined the driveway to the Prince George's County Fire Services Building in Landover Hills. The Prince George's County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Association, International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF)Local 1619, accepted donations on, Monday, January 18, 2010, from 2PM until 4PM. The donations of non-perishable food items, baby care items, over-the-counter medications and personal care items were more then expected and additional vehicles had to brought in to accommodate all the donations. IAFF Local 1619 President Andy Pantelis stated, "Whenever we ask for help with donations after disasters, our citizens and residents never disappoint and today's effort was humbling to be a part of. Everybody wants to do something to help."

Items donated were delivered to the Haiti Embassy Collection warehouse.
