St. Vincent Center is teaming with an innovative earthquake-proof shelter-maker in the U.S. that is donating several units for use as dormitories for students and staff. Each unit costs approximately $3,500 plus shipping. We are trying to raise $50,000 for 10 more units and shipping costs. Units will be shipped using the Mission Shipping, a non-profit relief organization. Units will be assembled by Haitian workers from the YMCA d'Haiti who previously assembled a unit as a classroom. For more information on the units themselves, please visit www.decadome.com.
