Military spouses give back

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Military spouses, who receive so much support when their loved ones are deployed, are working to support Haiti earthquake victims.

The Albany chapter of Enlisted Spouses is collecting money for Mercy Corps to purchase tablets that will clean water so it can be used for cooking and drinking.

Clean water was already hard to come by in Haiti before the earthquake. Now, it's incredibly difficult to get it to those who desperately need it.  Kristen Morgan said, "We're a small organization and we get so much support from the country and our local community, being spouses of military members, so when we can give back and support our military members that are there helping, it's a good feeling."

You don't have to give much to make a big impact. As little as $8 can feed a person for an entire month.  Want to help?  Click here.
