As we celebrate Global Volunteer Month this October, we’re following up on a story from earlier this year. UPS Business Development Director Craig Arnold went to Haiti In January to volunteer with the Salvation Army in earthquake relief. With the help of The UPS Foundation, Craig has returned to Haiti this week.  Daily, I receive updates and photos from his trip. Below he recounts his first three days… 

Day 1

I landed in Port Au Prince today. Spent a few hours organizing the rental car. They had the reservation but no cars. It all worked out in the end.  That is something you get used to in Haiti. It was OK because I needed to wait at the airport for other members of the team anyway. 

Five from the team are here, all guys who were here right after the earthquake. Three speak French or Creole, or both, and everyone speaks English so that is very helpful. There is a UPS photographer coming on Monday.
