Alpharetta, GA., March 9, 2010 - As aid drives continue for Haiti, Dogwood Forest Assisted Living communities are partnering to launch “Hands on Haiti: Family to Family,” an ongoing aid mission to lend support towards the restoration efforts in Haiti and to support Dogwood Forest employees that were personally affected by the earthquake.

“The months ahead are going to be tough,” said Tami Tucker, life enrichment director at Dogwood Forest of Fayetteville.” “After the media leaves, they will still be there needing our help. Our residents, family members and employees are all pitching in.”

Dogwood Forest aid drives range from collecting packed large zip-closed bags containing cloths, undergarments and toiletries to collecting water, tents and baby formula.

Communities are teaming up with local organizations that are such as Hosea Feed the Homeless the Red Cross and local church ministries to transport items to Haiti.

Kathy Pittman, life enrichment director for Dogwood Forest of Gainesville, said the Haiti mission has spiritual significance for her. “The Spirit of the Lord reminded me of the miracle that Jesus did with two loaves of bread and five fish,” Pittman said. “I believe God will do the same for this ministry if we give. He will bless it and give it back multiplied for the people of Haiti.”
