Broward County may donate 600 portable classrooms to Haiti to replace schools
that are still being used as shelters for displaced victims of storms Fay, Gustav, Hanna, and Ike. Broward School Board member Benjamin Williams plans to ask his fellow board members to donate the 20-foot by 30-foot classrooms, and Williams is also exploring an arrangement with Walmart to donate school supplies. Haitian President René Préval, who visited South Florida over the weekend, is trying to raise money to transport and assemble the classrooms.
