My­ers, Fletcher & Gor­don sup­ports Haiti re­lief

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

THE MY­ERS, Fletcher & Gor­don fam­ily re­sponded to Food For The Poor’s call for as­sis­tance to Haiti in the af­ter­math of Hur­ri­cane Matthew by hand­ing over a cheque for $300,000 and nu­mer­ous canned items on Novem­ber 7 at its down­town Kingston law of­fice.

Peter Gold­son, the firm’s man­ag­ing part­ner, said em­phat­i­cally, “Hav­ing been spared what could have been a dev­as­tat­ing blow to Ja­maica, we have to do our part to as­sist our neigh­bours in Haiti with their re­cov­ery”. “Our So­cial Out­reach Com­mit­tee is man­dated to iden­tify ar­eas where the firm may as­sist in the em­pow­er­ment and up­lift­ment of peo­ple, par­tic­u­larly the young among us. When the rec­om­men­da­tion was made that we should in­clude Haiti, our en­tire firm was quick to sup­port,” added Gold­son.
