Church sending relief supplies to Haiti

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A Forrest County church is about to provide some major relief to earthquake victims in Haiti. Shady Grove Baptist Church in Eastabuchie will soon send an 18-wheel truck full of supplies to the capital of Port-Au-Prince.

Food, first aid kits, baby items, sewing machines and fabrics are among the supplies being sent. The church is coordinating their efforts with a relief agency based in Georgia.

A truck carrying the supplies will leave from the church for the port of Miami in a couple of weeks.
