    MEDIA ADVISORY


    NYS SENATOR ERIC ADAMS RESPONDS TO THE EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI TO OFFER SUPPORT TO HIS LARGE HAITIAN CONSTITUENCY AND ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY THIS TERRIBLE NATURAL DISASTER.


    Senator Adams states: 


    “Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti in their time of severe adversity and dire need.  I ask my fellow New Yorkers to extend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters in Haiti and to the bereaved here in the U.S. 


    "It is in time of tragedy that the nobility and generosity of the human spirit can truly shine through.  I know that New Yorkers from all backgrounds will join me in supporting and assisting the many people affected by this devastation. 


    "My office is committed to assisting recovery, relief, and rebuilding efforts.  My staff and I will continue to monitor the situation.  We are working in conjunction with several organizations to provide aid to those in need: 8CC Haitian Center Council and its Director Henry Frank; Ebbets Field Community Development Center and its Director Michelle Adolphe; and Haitian American National Alliance and its Executive Director Dr. George Casimir.  Working in partnership with these organizations, we will coordinate with Chase Bank and establish an account dedicated to all money raised for those affected by the calamity. 


    We would encourage everyone to visit performing artist Wyclef Jean’s donation page (www.yele.org).”
