Date:3/23/2010

Grand Canyon University's Compassion and Generosity has touched the lives of the survivors of the earthquake in Haiti. The Grand Canyon University community has donated more than $20,000 to a special GCU relief fund that was created shortly after the disaster struck on January 12, 2010.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 23, 2010 -- Grand Canyon University's Compassion and Generosity has touched the lives of the survivors of the Haiti earthquake. The Grand Canyon University community has donated more than $20,000 to a special GCU relief fund that was created shortly after the disaster struck on January 12, 2010.

Grand Canyon University will be matching all the funds donated by GCU employees, students, alumni and friends up to $25,000. Donations will be used to give the survivors basic necessities like clean drinking water, food and a place to sleep as well as medical provisions that will save lives and limbs.

"Grand Canyon University represents a community of service, compassion and generosity that is called upon to demonstrate our faith through our actions," said Grand Canyon University CEO Brian Mueller. "Our community has responded from the heart, as they always do, and donated to those who are need."

GCU donations are helping serve the needs of all Haitians. Some donations are being put to immediate use at St. Damien Hospital, a 120-bed, free pediatric hospital in Tabarre, Haiti. St Damien is serving the tremendous needs of the people in Haiti, and the work being done at St Damien was recently featured on a Wall Street Journal online broadcast.

If you are interested in making a contribution, GCU assures that your money will be put to the best use possible to assist those in Haiti who are in need. To make a donation that will be matched by GCU, visit GCU Friends of the Orphans.
