NACDS Foundation Contributes $150,000 to Haiti Relief Efforts

Urges continued focus on long-term needs of the Haitian people

Palm Beach, FL (Vocus) April 25, 2010 -- The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation today announced $150,000 in contributions to assist in the Haiti relief effort. The contributions include $50,000 each to organizations that have been immersed in this important work since the January earthquake: Doctors Without Borders, AmeriCares, and Convoy of Hope.

“Haiti has disappeared from the front pages of our newspapers, but it will take decades of work to restore the land of these proud people,” said NACDS Foundation Chairman of the Board Steven C. Anderson, IOM, CAE, who also serves as president and CEO of NACDS. “These contributions reflect the many, many steps that pharmacy chains and suppliers, and others across industries have made to assist Haiti at this time.”

Anderson announced the contributions during his remarks at the NACDS Annual Meeting.

Among their areas of expertise, Doctors Without Borders focuses on healthcare delivery; AmeriCares delivers much-needed medicines, medical supplies, water purification tablets, baby food and other resources; and Convoy of Hope provides meals, medical supplies and water filtration systems to places in need.

“The NACDS Foundation’s vision is to improve the health and wellness of the people in America, and the NACDS Foundation Board of Directors decided wisely to extend this vision globally amid the ongoing and tremendous need in Haiti,” said NACDS Foundation President Edith A. Rosato, RPh, IOM. “Our commitment to helping those in Haiti knows no bounds and we truly hope that this contribution will assist in the relief effort, and help maintain a focus on the long-term needs of the Haitian people.”

In addition to this contribution, the NACDS Foundation is matching dollar-for-dollar contributions of NACDS and NACDS Foundation staff members to Hope for Haiti, as part of the Green for Jeans program. Through this program, staff members make donations for the privilege of wearing jeans to work on Fridays.

The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that serves as the education, research and charitable affiliate of NACDS. The NACDS Foundation seeks to improve the health and wellness of the people in America. It utilizes education, research, and charitable involvement to help people improve their health and quality of life through an understanding of medication therapy and the importance of taking medications appropriately.
