The City of Coral Gables is collecting donations for the victims of the earthquake that ravaged Haiti. Cash donations are the most effective way of providing relief.

All of the City’s Police and Fire Stations continue to accept relief supplies. The most needed supplies include nonperishable food, canned goods with easy-to-open lids, water, gloves of all types, surgical masks and camping tents.
