Brown & Toland to Match Employee Donations to Partners in Health's Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund
Date:1/15/2010

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Brown & Toland announced today that it will match up to $10,000 in employee donations to the Partners In Health (PIH) Haiti Earthquake Fund, for a collective total donation of up to $20,000.

"We have all watched the results of the devastating earthquake in Haiti with heartfelt anguish," said Gloria Austin, Brown & Toland's Chief Executive Officer. "We are encouraging our employees to open their hearts to help the people of Haiti, to generate meaningful support."

Fiona Wilson, M.D., Brown & Toland's Chief Quality Officer, first became involved with Partners In Health nearly 25 years ago. "It began as a clinic in Haiti, founded by a medical school classmate of mine, and has grown into a global health organization which serves roughly 2.5 million people worldwide," said Wilson. The effort in Haiti will leverage the skills of more than 120 doctors and nearly 500 nurses and nursing assistants.

This humanitarian effort resonates with Brown & Toland. "Many of our employees expressed interest in supporting relief efforts in Haiti," Austin said. "Dr. Wilson's involvement with Partners In Health gave us an outlet to express our deepest sympathy to those affected by this tragedy. It is the right thing to do."

Brown & Toland's 250 employees have supported a number of relief efforts in the past as well. They donated to help the victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and have donated more than $100,000 to the American Heart Association to support research to combat heart disease.
