THE BRONX - Members of the Church of the Mediator are grateful to finally be able to send their donations off for the Haiti relief.

Church parishioners had a collection of clothes, food and medical supplies sitting in the pews because they lacked the $3,000 needed to ship.

People in the community who heard their story, offered to help whether it was coming forward with donations, cash or volunteering physical labor, they all came together to make a difference.
