Join in to Help Haiti!

Lincoln Park Market has partnered with Park West Community Association to provide survival kits to St. Damien Hospital in Haiti.

St. Damien is a 120-bed free pediatric hospital in Tabarre that cares for more than 200 patients each day. When patients are released from the hospital, they are sent home with a special one-month survival kit that contains basic items to sustain a discharged patient for a month.

With your help, Park West and Lincoln Park Market can pack and ship at least 250 kits to Haiti this summer.

It's easy for you to donate or contribute your time:

Make a Direct Donation. Each kit costs $50, so you can sponsor a kit or give whatever amount you feel you can. Checks should be made out to Friends of the Orphans and can be dropped off or mailed to Lincoln Park Market at 2500 N. Clark Street.

Join me at the Packing Party. Join in this Saturday, July 17th at 10:00 am at Lincoln Park Market (2500 N. Clark) to help pack Survivial Kits. To join in, sign up at the store or email bruce@lincolnparkmarket.com. Please indicate the number of adults and children in your group.

If you have any questions please contact info@parkwestcommunity.com or bruce@lincolnparkmarket.com.
