Menendez discusses helping Haiti on the Ed Show

Senator Menendez just appeared on the Ed Show to talk about the current response to the earthquake in Haiti that is being mobilized. He mentioned the President’s $100 million commitment and assistance that is headed over, but also talked about some of the challenges including the current closure of the airport. He said this is a challenge, but we’ll do everything we humanly can. I’ll put the full interview at the end of the post.

There are many efforts out of New Jersey to assist efforts in Haiti right now. Some NJ companies were among the first to respond to the disaster. Cooper Hospital is sending a medical team:

Cooper University Hospital will send a medical team to Haiti in a mission funded by South Jersey political leader George Norcross’ charitable foundation.  The mission will be headed by Anthony Mazzarelli, M.D., the Director of Emergency Medicine at Cooper.

There are many organizations and efforts trying to assist. If you want to help, you can make a contribution through the Tri-County Red Cross to help fund.

Here is the segment:

    If George Norcross wants to be a humanitarian, why not start in his own back yard of Camden NJ?

    you don’t even need a private jet to get there.
