Haiti Relief for Spring Outing

Coyotes - Please read info below and plan on bringing a relief kit. Thanks.

Haiti Relief at Spring Outing

There is a reason why we call ourselves the "Mighty Arapahoe Nation." There is strength in our numbers. As you are aware the entire nation of Haiti was affected by the earthquake that occurred on January 12, 2010. As with most human disasters on this level, there is an initial overwhelming response from the global community; however, there is a natural tendency to move on with our lives. In Haiti, the pain, suffering, and need continues. This is where the Mighty Arapahoe Nation can step in to help make a difference.

The Third Year tribe Raging Ravens is spearheading an effort with the Arapahoe Nation to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake. They are asking every father/child pair to make a Personal Hygiene Kit and bring it to the Spring Outing where we will collect the kits. Dads and kids will need to purchase a 1 gallon zippered plastic bag. Inside the bag please include the following items:

  • 1 Hand Towel
    1 Washcloth
    1 Bar of Soap (3 oz and up)
    1 Toothbrush (single brush only in original wrapper, not child-sized)
    1 Tube of Toothpaste
    1 Large Comb
    1 Nail File or Nail Clipper
    6 Band-aids
    1 One Dollar Bill (in an envelope to defray various project costs)

Please help the Raging Ravens and the Mighty Arapahoe Nation support the citizens of Haiti. Each pair that brings a Personal Hygiene Kit to the Spring Outing will receive special patches for their efforts. You only need one kit per pair to receive the patches, but you are welcome and encouraged to make more than one kit.

The Raging Ravens are also looking for additional support for this project. They need help procuring suitable cardboard boxes for packing the kits, large collection bins for the Spring Outing, a rental truck to transport the kits from Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer to the drop off location after the final Spring Outing weekend, and other needs. If you can help with these additional efforts, please contact John Jenkins at or (919) 906-8508. Thank you in advance for your time and support!
