JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Volunteers filled a bus at the Carpenter's Shop Center in Arlington with clothes to be shipped to Haiti.

More than 50 bags with shirts, pants, shoes and belts were donated for the victims of a devastating earthquake last week.

Angela Raymond and her 11-year-old daughter, Kayla, decided to volunteer.

"I feel great that someone is going to benefit from what I'm doing, because I benefited from someone who did this for me," said Angela Raymond.

Raymond lived in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, she said. "When I saw what was going on in Haiti it brought it all back to me, that man this is Katrina all over again." 

Raymond said her family was able to start over with the help of donations. Now her daughter is giving the toys donated to her to the kids in Haiti.

The Carpenter's Shop Center is a ministry that helps families in need. 

"We have so much and they have so little. I'm thinking of all the clothes hanging up on the rack that people need right now," said Cheryl Wilder, the center's executive director.  

Wilder said, with so many generous donations, she has no doubt that the center's stock of clothes will be back to where it was in a couple of weeks.
