MBAF Raises More Than $20K for Haiti Disaster Relief

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 5, 2010) - To provide relief for the victims of the recent earthquakes in Haiti, Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra, LLP (MBAF) recently collected a total of $21,758 from staff and clients from around the United States. The funds will be donated to the American Red Cross, Partners in Health, and Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart's Haiti Fund.

"I sympathize with the citizens of Haiti and their suffering at such a tragic time, and hope that MBAF's contribution will help to improve their living conditions," said Tony Argiz, CEO and managing partner of MBAF. "At MBAF, we understand the importance of helping those less fortunate and that our support can considerably impact their lives."

During this challenging period, MBAF will join forces with the American Red Cross, the non-profit organization that shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; Partners In Health, the non-profit corporation whose mission it is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care; and the South Florida-based Catholic school Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart's Haiti Fund in its efforts to assist the Haitian population.

"I want to personally thank each and every one of my colleagues and clients at MBAF who contributed to this disaster relief effort for Haiti," commented Hudson Robillard, a native of Haiti and an audit supervisor at MBAF. "It is heart wrenching to watch the suffering, despair, and helplessness of my brothers and sisters; I see myself through them and wish I could do more. I am very grateful for your support."

By donating time, personal service and financial support, MBAF contributes to more than 100 organizations in a wide variety of causes including philanthropic, educational, religious, professional and community-focused. For this particular effort, the company matched the funds raised by employees.
