Legislators Give to Haiti Efforts

The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus Foundation will donate $200,000 to Haiti earthquake relief efforts, the group announced Monday.

Additionally, the foundation will host a benefit dinner in February with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.

Last week, freshmen Dels. Luke Torian (D-Prince William) and Ron Villanueva (R-Virginia Beach) challenged their colleagues to personally donate $100 each to Haiti relief efforts.

They’re collecting the money until Wednesday, but so far have received about $1,000.
