Celtics Helping Aid Earthquake Relief Efforts in Haiti

The Celtics might be battling injuries, but there’s nothing wrong with their hearts.

The team and NBA Cares are teaming up with UNICEF to help aid the relief efforts for earthquake-stricken Haiti. Celtics fans can make donations at the team’s home games on Jan. 14 and Jan. 18. Donations made at those games will be matched by the team’s Shamrock Foundation.

“We are appealing to the generosity of Celtics fans to join the Celtics organization and the Shamrock Foundation in our efforts, through UNICEF, to provide vital services to the earthquake victims in Haiti during this great time of need,” Celtics team president Rich Gotham said.

Fans not attending either game who wish to contribute should log onto celtics.com, visit the team’s Facebook and Twitter pages or call 1-800-4UNICEF.

On Jan. 12, a massive earthquake rocked the Caribbean nation of Haiti, causing mass devastation. The Celtics are doing their part to bring attention to the crisis and much-needed emergency assistance to the victims.
