Haggen collects for Haiti relief

Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores are collecting donations to fund World Vision’s relief efforts in Haiti, which was devastated by a Jan. 12 earthquake.

World Vision, based in Federal Way, is using cash donations to send the most urgent of life-saving supplies, such as water and medicine, to Haitian victims of the earthquake. World Vision has been working in Haiti since 1959 and has had an office in its capital of Port-au-Prince since 1978.

“World Vision is trusted by Washington residents,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores. “World Vision was supporting seven healthcare clinics and operating 19 development programs for the people of Haiti before the earthquake struck, so we’re confident that donations will be utilized efficiently and compassionately.”

Customers may make donations of any amount at Haggen checkstands through Feb. 9. For more information, visit
