We have all watched with feelings of shock and helplessness as news reports chronicle the devastating effects of an earthquake on the Caribbean nation of Haiti. With the death toll rising, our hearts go out to a nation suffering immeasurable loss.
The Firm donated $5,000 and pledged to match the first $10,000 of staff and lawyer donations. Moved by stories and scenes of devastation, lawyers and staff have so far donated $17,000, for a combined total of $32,000. With Federal Government matching, this effort will make available over $49,000 to the Haitian relief effort. This money will help the organization provide shelter, clean water and much-needed medical support.
Stewart McKelvey congratulates its staff and lawyers in rising to meet this challenge and encourages others to take the time to give to this very worthy cause.
