Hinesville Help Haiti 2011

HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) - The people in Liberty County hoped to help people devastated by the earthquake in Haiti.

Saturday the group "Hinesville Help Haiti 2011" rounded up pairs of shoes and collected monetary donations. For the past month they asked people to donate new or gently used shoes.

The city of Hinesville placed boxes all over the city. The group was hoping to collect at least 1,000 pairs of shoes and raise more than $1,000 to ship them overseas.

They say they believe they made their goal.
