Lingle statement on Haiti earthquake recovery

Gov. Linda Lingle has issued the following statement:

“The people of Hawaii have been following the news of the devastating disaster in Haiti with great interest and have been generously donating towards the relief effort. The U.S. government has sent thousands of military personnel and tons of aid, including supplies and volunteers. As always, our residents have reached deep into their hearts and pocketbooks to contribute to those Haitians who need immediate aid.

“The State of Hawaii stands with the people of Haiti during this time of crisis and we pledge our long-term support. I urge everyone to continue donating to the American Red Cross and other relief agencies. I also ask the people of Hawaii to keep the Haitians in their thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.”
