A South Florida Jewish organization dropped off boxes of supplies that came from the surplus of the Surfside building donations.

"We thought, wow, we got some stuff that you guys could really use," said Bonnie Schwartzbaum.

Schwartzbaum and Morgan Weinblatt came to the North Miami City Hall in a van filled with boxes of supplies for Haitians affected by the earthquake. The boxes are the extra donations the Jewish Community Service of South Florida had for the Surfside victims.

"They keep coming in! And so we have a warehouse close to our JCS Food Bank and that’s where we’ve been storing a lot of these items," Weinblatt said. “When the building collapse there were asking for pillows, blankets, sweatshirts, toiletries, and first aid kits. We had an excess!,” said Schwartzbaum, who is the Program Director of the JCS Food Bank

These excess items will help the Haitians who survived the deadly 7.2 earthquake that shook the island nation.

The city of North Miami, which has a large Haitian-American population, paired up with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation to collect donations.
