Peace Builders volunteer Frank Klein and Menlo Park firefighter David Dickinson help load a truck with more than 6,000 pounds of donated baby food for Haitian earthquake victims on Friday, March 5.

Diane Eskenazi of Peace Builders, the Woodside-based nonprofit, gathered $1.5 million in corporate and private donation to aid relief efforts in Haiti following the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck the country on Jan. 12.

Volunteers, including about 100 Woodside Elementary students, gathered in the school's parking lot to help pack donations, which included new Gymboree clothing, tents, bedding and medical supplies.
