Date:1/26/2010

NJ medical group raised more than 30K in employee donations and a matching gift for relief efforts in Haiti.

Berkeley Heights, NJ (Vocus) January 26, 2010 -- Summit Medical Group raised more than 30K for relief efforts following the January 12 earthquake in Haiti, by offering its employees the opportunity to donate via a one-time payroll deduction from their January 31 paychecks.

In his weekly email to SMG employees, Simon Samaha, President and CEO responded to the outpouring of employee requests for such an opportunity. Employees were given the choice to allocate their deductions to one or both of the following organizations: Doctors Without Borders, an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors, and/or The COTY (Church Outreach To Youth) Project. The COTY Project runs ongoing medical missions to impoverished villages throughout Haiti. Samaha promised further assistance from SMG with a matching gift of up to $100.00 for each employee donation.

Summit Medical Group employees pledged $15,835.00 to be deducted from their paychecks this week. More than 200 employees allocated their donations to Doctors Without Borders, 175 employees elected to allocate their donation to The COTY Project and 110 employees elected to split their donation between the two groups. As promised, their donations were matched by SMG for a total donation to disaster relief of $31,670.00.

Additionally, on Friday, April 16th, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., SMG will host an art show to benefit the resurrection of Haiti, with works exhibited by Haitian artists, live music, refreshments and much more. A portion of all sales from the show will be donated toward further relief efforts.
