Governor David Paterson has established an online registry of New York State citizens in Haiti at the time of Tuesday’s horrific earthquake. To access the online registry, go to the Governor’s website, www.ny.gov/governor/ and click on the New York State Registry of New York Citizens in Haiti. You will be asked to provide the name of the individuals you have not had contact with and provide some essential contact information. For those who do not have access to the web, the Governor has established a hotline – 1-888-769-7243 – staffed at the Department of Taxation and Finance.

One thought on “Local Haiti Donation Sites

  1. Thank you to all of you that made donations by phone, at our web site http://www.redcross.org and through the mail. The situation is getting more desperate by the moment. The Red Cross will accept gifts restricted to the Haiti earthquakes. Please give today.

    You can help the victims of countless crises, like the recent earthquake in Haiti, around
    the world each year by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross International
    Response Fund, which will provide immediate relief and long-term support through
    supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need. The American Red
    Cross honors donor intent.

    If you wish to designate your donation to a specific disaster,
    please do so at the time of your donation by mailing your donation with the designation
    to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013 or to your local
    American Red Cross chapter. Donations to the International Response Fund can be made
    by phone at 1-800-REDCROSS or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish) or online at http://www.redcross.org
