Boynton Beach commissioner to travel to Haiti with medical supplies


About a month has passed since Boynton Beach City Commissioner Christina Romelus and other leaders asked the community to get involved to help Haiti after Hurricane Matthew devastated the country.

On Wednesday, Romelus held a news conference at the fire station on Woolbright Road to announce the results of the PBC Haiti Relief Fund “Let’s Help Haiti” drive, and that she will travel to Haiti on Thursday.

The drive is a partnership between the city, the Palm Beach County Haiti Relief Fund and Boynton Beach Sister Cities.

Items collected in the drive will be shipped from the Port of Palm Beach to the southern peninsula of Haiti. The items will be distributed by Caritas Internationalis, a church that coordinates emergency operations, according to a news release.

Romelus plans to travel with other Palm Beach County officials and medical professionals.

While the drive is over, the city said money still can be donated online at www.PBCHaitiRelief.org.
