Customers and employees of TOP Food and Drug and Haggen Food and Pharmacy stores recently raised $16,905 for World Vision’s relief efforts in Haiti, which was devastated by a January 12 earthquake.

World Vision, based in Federal Way, is using cash donations to send the most urgent of life-saving supplies, such as water and medicine, to Haitian victims of the earthquake. World Vision has been working in Haiti since 1959 and has had an office in its capital of Port-au-Prince since 1978.

“World Vision would like to sincerely thank every individual who donated, as well as Top Food and Haggen for spearheading this important effort,” said Angela Appleton, corporate relations senior representative for World Vision. “Their immediate concern and generosity over the years during times of disaster is greatly appreciated.”

“We’re amazed by the generosity of those who gave to this effort and many others because the need in Haiti is so great,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for TOP Food and Haggen stores. “World Vision has been utilizing donations to help Haitians with emergency aid and will continue to assist them during the recovery phase.”
