LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WFLI) - Volunteers at Cornerstone Baptist Church put together 2,000 holiday packages for families in Haiti.
More than 70 people helped stuff and prepare gift bags Sunday.
The bags are filled with schools supplies, hygiene products and a toy.
Organizers said the church has teamed up with Christmas Bags for Haiti for several years now.
Each bag costs roughly $11, but officials said these items mean a lot to families in Haiti.
"A tube of toothpaste costs about $10 in the country of Haiti. A bar of soap, people never even receive, so it's a Godsend. That bag in Haiti could possibly be worth as high as $50 in our type of money," said Stanley Curtis, team coordinator for Christmas Bags for Haiti.
Christmas Bags for Haiti sends more than 10,000 bags to Haiti each year.
The bags prepared Sunday are expected to reach Haiti by early November.
