The Hasbro Children’s Fund, the philanthropic arm of global play and entertainment company Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), announced today that it is making two grants totaling $100,000 to provide shelter and hunger relief for children and families in Haiti following Hurricane Matthew. A $25,000 grant will help SOS Children’s Villages USA, a global organization dedicated to providing family-based care for orphaned and abandoned children, to repair damage to one of its villages located in Haiti. This grant will also support children orphaned by the storm. A $75,000 grant will help Partners in Health, one of the largest NGOs operating in Haiti, fight pediatric malnutrition.
“Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by Hurricane Matthew,” said Karen Davis, senior vice president of Global Philanthropy and Social Impact at Hasbro. “We hope these funds will help SOS Children’s Villages and Partners in Health provide much-needed care to families in Haiti recovering from the storm.”
Hasbro and the Hasbro Children’s Fund have a long history of assisting with disaster relief efforts, providing cash, in-kind and volunteer support, as appropriate.
