The Lodi area is pouring out its heart — and pocketbook — to help people devastated by last week's earthquake in Haiti. And local churches are among the most active in the relief effort.

"We feel that as Christians, it's an obligation to help those in need," said Pastor Bill Cummins, of Bear Creek Community Church. "The Bible is real clear on teaching this truth. Jesus commanded us to help those in need."

    no1special: Good point. For those wishing to donate, make sure the money goes to an organization that specifically provides services and supplies. If a group is just sending money directly to Haiti, it probably won't get to the people who desperately need help. The charitynavigator.org site listed above is a good way to see where your money is really going.

    Here's the link to a great Christian organization with direct links to services and other groups in Haiti that send the funds and resources directly to Haiti, where they are needed rather than sit on it.http://www.churchworldservice.org/site/PageServer
