Haiti campaign raises more than $6,000

The GW community raised $6,324.70 Friday through the “Swipe Your GWorld for Haiti” campaign to aid Haiti earthquake relief efforts, University spokeswoman Michelle Sherrard said.

Donations will be split evenly between two relief organizations: the American Red Cross and Project Medishare, an independent nonprofit organization that provides health care to Haitian people, according to a University statement.

University President Steven Knapp donated $1,000 to Haiti’s relief efforts Friday afternoon.

Collection locations were spread out among the three University campuses in the GWorld office, Colonial Central, Columbian Square, Ames Dining Hall, and the Virginia Science and Technology campus.
