"This is the time Haiti needs help and your help is really vital and important for us right now," Dorrine said. 

There are two donation drop off locations in Salisbury, the Calloway Street gym and at the Caribbean Cafe on Isabella Street.Organizers said their non-profit organization Rebirth Inc. is working closely with other organizations to supply aid to Haiti as quickly as possible. 

"People in Haiti actually really values the effort because they know how important the Haiti community overseas is to them, we contribute to them we're really helping them and they really value it, that's why no help is too little anything you can contribute will definitely benefit them because at this moment they have nothing," Dorrine said.
