TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2010) - Effective immediately, the public can help support those whose lives were devastated by the recent earthquake in Haiti by making donations to the Canadian Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund at any of the more than 600 LCBO stores throughout Ontario.

"Ontarians have a long history of giving generously when others are affected by natural disasters," said LCBO President and CEO Bob Peter. "LCBO is pleased to provide this public fundraising opportunity contributing to the relief effort in earthquake-ravaged Haiti."

The Canadian government has said it will match every dollar Canadians contribute to the relief effort in Haiti up to a maximum of $50 million.
