Collette gives emergency relief to Haiti

PAWTUCKET – At the end of 2016, Collette, the Rhode Island based international tour operator, provided $25,000 to Stop Hunger Now toward relief for Haiti from damage done by Hurricane Matthew, according to a press release. Hurricane Matthew severely damaged parts of Haiti in October. The storm flooded homes, destroyed communities and left 1.4 million people in desperate need of emergency aid.

The $25,000 grant will go to Stop Hunger Now’s Global Emergency Relief Fund, and will provide food, water and hygiene kits. Additionally, more than 200 volunteers from Collette packaged 30,000 meals with Stop Hunger Now that were directly delivered to Haiti as well.

“We are so honored to partner with Stop Hunger Now to offer relief to Haiti in the form of funds for essential needs and meals that we worked with them to package,” said Nicole Diebold, senior manager of Corporate Giving.
