Hundreds Of Pairs Of Shoes And Clothing Shipped To Island Nation For Aid
The recent earthquakes in the South Pacific triggered tsunamis in Samoa and other island nations killing hundreds and leaving thousands of island residents homeless or displaced. In an effort to help those Samoans whose lives have been destroyed, DVS has sent hundreds of pairs of shoes and clothing items to local residents in the island nation's capital city of Apia.
Southern Samoa and American Samoa bore the brunt of the tsunami, which destroyed businesses, homes, power lines, and left many without clothing or shelter. "Its time to set aside our worries about our own economy here in the United States and focus on helping people who are in real and immediate need," says Podium Distribution VP Tim Gavin.
