Following the earthquake in January 2010, UPS Sales Director Craig Arnold and many other UPS employees went to Haiti and worked in local communities to distribute supplies and establish basic services. As a Salvation Army local board member, Craig had previously volunteered in Haiti before the earthquake, making him familiar with the people and culture. These skills, combined with his contacts at UPS, allowed Craig to offer significant support, including the use of the UPS Trackpad technology, an inventory management system used to track/distribute supplies.
In preparation for the one-year anniversary of the earthquake, this past October Craig returned for a week to revisit the areas and people he worked with last January.
This video shows highlights from Craig’s trip to support the Salvation Army in the newer relief projects and interview on-site staff and local officials about current needs and status of the recovery.
