Kaine, McDonnell Join Forces for Haiti Relief

Gov. Tim Kaine (D) and Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell (R) are working together to help victims of the horrific earthquake in Haiti.

The two leaders announced Friday that state employees who donate to the Commonwealth Virginia Campaign will have their money forwarded to the American Red Cross’ relief efforts.

Virginia workers contributed $400,000 through a similar campaign in the months after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Details on how to give are after the jump.

To give to the Earthquake fund, state employees are asked to:
1.      Write a Check or Money Order to “Red Cross International Response Fund”
2.      Mail or hand deliver this check to the CVC office at
CVC – Disaster Relief
Dept. of Human Resource Management
101 North 14th Street  – 12th Floor
Richmond  VA  232193.      Checks will be forwarded directly through the Red Cross Disaster Services for immediate use. 
4.      Gifts by credit card (MasterCard and Visa) can be made using a standard CVC pledge card.  Enter the charity code as “9999” and mail the pledge form to the address above.
Employees should keep a copy of their check for tax purposes.  As in previous disaster campaigns, gifts will be recorded as a Direct Campaign for CVC purposes.
