Friday, January 30th, 2015

Today members of the Laker Navy teamed up with the Rays of Hope organization to help fill a shipping container of various supplies on its way to Haiti. Various supplies such as medical kits, cleaning supplies, buckets of nonperishable food items and textiles were jammed into a standard 20 foot shipping container.In order to ship as many goods as possible the Lakers packed every crevasse and filled the trailer to its mass capacity this morning. As a team, we would like to thank the Rays of Hope organization for letting us help with their January shipment to Haiti. The Rays of Hope website can be viewed at: They’re also always looking for volunteers to help pack these monthly shipping containers that go all around the globe to help less fortunate cities.
