Donations for Haiti

Dr. Michael Ettner, an emergency department physician at Kootenai Medical Center, is spearheading a drive to collect crutches, walkers and canes for distribution to Haitians injured in the recent earthquake. Super 1 Foods stores will have collection areas where donations may be delivered.
Dr. Ettner and several other area medical professionals recently returned from treating Haitians who sustained broken bones, burns and crushing injuries in Haiti. In an e-mail from the tiny island nation, “Haiti has become a nation of amputees,” he said.
As soon as a load is collected, thedevices will be trucked free of charge to Miami where a Royal Caribbean cruise ship will ferry them at no cost to a working port in Haiti.
