Fuente & Newman Families send supplies to Haitian earthquake victims
Trucks full of water, canned food, basic medical supplies, blankets, and tents are making the journey directly to the devastated areas in a matter of hours, compared to U.S planes which are backlogged for months trying to get to the city's crippled airport. "We have a direct route to Haiti," said Carlos Fuente, Jr., "we want to get as many supplies down there as we can.
The Cigar Family Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity started in 2001 by the Fuente and Newman families. In addition to contributions by the founding families, the foundation is also taking public donations. To help, please send cash or check to Cigar Family Charitable Foundation – Mission Haiti, P.O. Box 2030, Tampa, Fla. 33601. Because the Fuente and Newman Families underwrite all administrative costs, 100 percent of donations go directly to aide the people of Haiti.
