Honeywell Commits $1 Million To Rebuilding Together Led Haiti Relief Efforts
Major Grant Supports Rebuilding Together Haiti Relief Plan
WASHINGTON, D.C. - January 26, 2010 - Rebuilding Together today announced that they are working with Honeywell, one of their long-established partners, in order to provide immediate aid to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
Honeywell has announced that they will commit $1 million, including a 100% match of employee donations, to fund Rebuilding Together's revitalization and rebuilding projects in Haiti. Additionally, Honeywell is making its business jets available to provide airlift support to deliver 1,500 lbs. of medical supplies, including urgently-needed, high-value antibiotics.
Rebuilding Together, a leading nonprofit that works diligently to preserve affordable homeownership and reconstruct communities in the U.S., recognizes the urgency to help the communities in Haiti that have been devastated by the earthquake. Rebuilding Together will allot their fundraised donations and grants for Haiti to three core activities: emergency medical assistance, community clean-up and neighborhood rebuilding; with the help of their partners.
"We are delighted with Honeywell's generous support for rebuilding tasks that will be needed in Haiti," stated Gary A. Officer, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. "We are confident that with the involvement of Operation USA, we will, together, provide much needed reconstruction work on the schools and community centers within the country of Haiti."
The contributions and partnership with Honeywell will assist Rebuilding Together in their efforts to implement projects aimed at facilitating the clean-up and rebuilding process in Haiti.
