“H20 for Haiti: The Birmingham Tap Project” will ask Birmingham-area restaurant patrons who drink water with their meals to donate $1 or more during World Water Week, March 21-27, to raise money for clean drinking water for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

Volunteer opportunities are available for faculty, staff and students to assist with restaurant recruitment, raising community awareness and event planning. The Student Association for Graduate Education (SAGE) in the Department of Health Care Organization & Policy is holding Tap Project interest sessions for those interested in volunteering or learning more. The sessions are Wednesday, Feb. 10 from noon to 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 to 6 p.m. in Ryals Building Room 234.

A portion of the funds raised this year will support UNICEF’s water, sanitation and hygiene programs in Haiti, the Central African Republic, Guatemala, Togo and Vietnam. A donation of $1 provides a child with clean drinking water for 40 days.
