IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Tiger Woods plans to help with relief efforts in earthquake-ravaged Haiti by supporting groups providing resources to children.

The president of the Tiger Woods Foundation says he hasn’t received any information from rap mogul Russell Simmons, who has said on Twitter that Woods is providing $3 million to help with the recovery.

Foundation president Greg McLaughlin says Woods’ staff is evaluating the best way to help the Haitian people.

McLaughlin says supporting groups aimed at youth services would be consistent with what Woods’ foundation has done previous with relief efforts of Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Indonesia.
