Sinclair Response to Haiti

The Haiti Disaster

On January 12, a series of earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 6.5 to 7.3 devastated the Caribbean state of Haiti. We at Sinclair stand with the world in mourning the victims of this terrible disaster and look for ways to help this stricken nation.

In 1887, David A. Sinclair founded our college with a strong philosophy in mind for its future: find a need and endeavor to meet it. And today, Sinclair President Steven Johnson reminds us that "right now, the people of Haiti have a great need and we have a great opportunity to help meet that need in any way we can."

Sinclair’s Haiti Disaster Response Team is currently working to develop a full plan for disaster relief efforts led by the college. In the near future, Sinclair hopes to:

  • organize aid trips to provide hands-on help in Haiti
  • provide books, furniture and equipment to Haitian schools
  • organize food and clothing drives for donations

Currently, the college is accepting donations for the disaster relief efforts in Haiti. If you would like to donate through Sinclair Community College, you can drop off a check, payable to "American Red Cross Haiti," to Sharon Smith in Sinclair’s Advancement office, located in Building 12, Room 201.

There are also donation boxes located at Sinclair’s Courseview Campus Center and the Englewood, Huber Heights, and Preble County Learning Centers.
