The East Boston way: Filling clunkers with H20 for Haiti

A ship will leave on January 24th out of Marginal Street shipyard next Sunday that will carry much-needed bottled water to Haiti.

The ship which arrives monthly and carries "clunker" cars and trucks to Haiti will this time be filled with as much water as can go in the vehicles on the shipo.

From now until next Sunday, the ship will be accepting bottled water Just contact the guard office on Marginal Street. The shipyard workers will pack the water on pallets.

Many of the East Boston restaurants have already agreed to bring some water down to the ship yard. The shipyard manager will be releasing more information later.
