A Charlottesville church is packing supplies to be sent to Haiti Wednesday night.

People at Ebenezer Baptist Church have been working all Wednesday afternoon and been collecting goods since Sunday. It is working with the Haitian Embassy in Washington to ship close to $10,000 dollars worth of basic medical supplies, baby clothes, and other essentials to people in need.

"We're a global human family and whenever there is tragedy anywhere in the world then it should touch us, and we should feel a sense of responsibility," said Pastor Lehman Bates.

The congregation will meet Haiti's ambassador to the U.S. for a special service Sunday, and give him a check towards relief efforts.
