Students and staff are planning several events to raise funds for Haiti earthquake relief. The week of 2/8 to 2/12 will be "A Valentine for Haiti" week, with students selling baked goods and valentines in the atrium. There will also be a raffle for staff, students, and community members with prizes donated by local businesses. On Friday, February 12 at 7PM we will host a variety show of student and local talent in the Hanover High auditorium. All money raised, including raffle proceeds and ticket sales, will support Haiti Relief Fund sponsored by Partners in Health. This is a medical organization with clinics already working in Haiti. Local medical teams from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center are in Haiti now, working with Partners in Health.

Finally, the greatest need in Haiti right now is for financial support. If you wish to send a donation to Partners in Health please use our website, "A Valentine for Haiti" at http://act.pih.org/page/group/AValentineforHaiti. Scroll to the bottom and look for the goal thermometer and the "Click Here to Donate" button. You can donate on-line directly to Partners in Health at any time.

Thank you for your support. .
