Information on Disaster Relief to Haiti

Ask Us Now, a 24/7 chat information portal which Montgomery College librarians provides support to, has compiled a Web page of general information and a list of disaster relief agencies helping to provide relief to Haiti.

Probably the easiest thing to do for those of you have text messaging on your phone is to send a text message to 90999 with the word Haiti in the text. A $10 donation will be added to your phone bill and the money goes to the International Red Cross.

For other ideas, please visit the Ask Us Now page at
