Bottled water drive benefits Haiti

READ MORE: Bottled water drive benefits Haiti

A group called Clean the World is partnering with a UNCW student to collect bottled water for Haiti. Through Facebook UNCW nursing student Lisa Chambers is spreading the word about the bottled water drive.

The event is being held at the Reserves at Forest Hills on Darlington Avenue in Wilmington. The donated water will depart Wilmington Friday in order to be shipped to Haiti on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship Sunday.

"I went to Haiti last spring break," Chambers said. "I was on a medical mission, and we helped out at a local clinic. Haiti is really close to my heart. I can't go there right now because I'm in nursing school and I graduate in May, so we're trying to do everything we can."

Culligan is donating 144 cases of bottled water. UNCW volunteers will man the drop-off site at the Reserve at Forest Hills until 10 tonight. They'll be there tomorrow from 3 to 10 p.m. as well.
