CaribWorldNews, BROOKLYN, NY, Weds. Jan. 27, 2010: Caribbean Americans in the New York City area, hoping to help Haiti, can drop off their donations at the Flatbush Caton Market drop-off center in Brooklyn.
The facility is being provided courtesy of the Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce and Industry in partnership with elected officials, corporate partners in academic, medical, civic and religious institutions, and with many Haitian American and other Caribbean American organizations in the Caribbean community.
The Market is located at 814 Flatbush Ave., at the corner of Caton Avenue. SUNY Downstate Medical Center is also providing emergency grief and trauma counseling services for the vendors and the surrounding community in an Emergency Trauma Mobile Van that is parked outside the Market.
