McGladrey and the Haitian Relief Effort

Over the past couple of weeks, we have all been impacted and deeply touched by the vast devastation that resulted from the earthquake in Haiti. McGladrey has responded in a number of ways recently, at the national level, at the local level, and in direct support of one of the most highly visible relief charities.

At the national level, McGladrey made a donation to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, which is focusing not only on the immediate needs of the Haitian people, but on the long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts as well.

At the local level, our employees have been involved with everything from offering 'jeans days' to raise money for the American Red Cross and UNICEF, to packing food for Feed My Starving Children and donating shoes to Soles 4 Souls.

Within the past few days, McGladrey was selected by Wyclef Jean's Yéle Haiti Foundation to assist with the management and distribution of money collected for the Yéle Haiti Earthquake Fund, as well as overseeing the accounting and transactional aspects of the Fund.

McGladrey never seems to fail to answer the call when others are in need, whether locally or internationally. We encourage everyone to do what you can to support the Haitian relief efforts if you have not already done so. We will certainly continue to help as much as we can.
