Natural disasters strengthen our sense of community...I have received several different messages from local health organizations for ways to help the situation in Haiti.
Here's a list of ways to contribute through your local fitness centers:
Triomph Fitness, Health, and Wellness
540 President street
"Clothing, hygiene products (men and women), canned foods, etc... will all be collected at Triomph this Saturday between 12-5p.m. Of course items can be brought in starting immediately, and we will continue to gather products well after Saturday."
Cobble Hill Fitness Collective
278 court street
"Please stop by the Collective with your cash donations. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Clinton Foundation for rescue efforts."
Brooklyn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
412 Myrtle Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11205
"Accepting donations to go to Operation USA."
