Montecristo Relief Organization Reaches Out to Haiti

Food For the Poor is responding to this terrible tragedy by supplying desperately needed nonperishable food and water to the earthquake victims immediately and will continue to provide ongoing aid and relief for rebuilding efforts.

Montecristo to Match Donations
In addition, the Montecristo Relief Organization will match dollar for dollar the first $125,000 in
contributions made by Altadis U.S.A. employees, customers, consumers and vendors. If you would like to contribute and have your donation matched by the Montecristo Relief Organization, please send your check made payable to Food For the Poor to:
Montecristo Relief Organization, Haiti Earthquake Relief
c/o Altadis U.S.A.
PO Box 407179
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33340-7166

Help and support is needed immediately, so time is of the essence. The Montecristo Relief
Organization will match funds donated by February 15th. We thank everyone in advance for joining us in this vital relief effort.

The Montecristo Relief Organization was established in 1999 by Altadis U.S.A. after several devastating hurricanes swept through the Caribbean killing thousands of people, injuring millions and causing unimaginable suffering. Since its inception the Montecristo Relief Organization has donated millions of dollars to build homes, schools, medical facilities and provide scholarships and economic opportunities to victims of natural disasters in the Caribbean and the United States.
