PHILADELPHIA, Pa. The devastation of the earthquake in Haiti prompted Herman Turnage, president of the Mt. Zion UM Men to start a t-shirt drive for the people of Haiti.
He invited the women of Mt. Zion UMC along members of Tindley Temple, Janes Memorial UMC, and Tioga UMC to help in the effort.
“The room was completely filled with donations,” said Turnage. “We estimate that we collected more than 15,000 t-shirts. First UMC of Germantown scheduled a pick up for the shirts, and they are on the way to Haiti."
