Long Island group keeps focus on Haiti

SAG HARBOR - A group of Long Islanders has been lending their time and talents to helping the people of Haiti for nearly a year after a devastating earthquake struck the island-nation on Jan. 12, 2010.

Almost a year ago, Jonathan Nash Glynn was on his way to Miami in his single-engine Cessna when he learned of the devastation that was developing in Haiti. He rerouted and set a course for Port-au-Prince.

Glynn has continued flying to Haiti and, with help from other Long Islanders, has started Wings Over Haiti, a relief organization that is building schools and feeding Haitian children.

"I am proud to say that on the anniversary of the earthquake, we have 43 incredibly beautiful children. We are giving them an education and we are feeding them," Glynn says.
