Montecristo Relief Organization to Provide Assistance to Joplin Tornado Victims

Help and support is needed immediately, so time is of the essence. The Montecristo Relief Organization will match donations made by June 15, 2011. Funds will be distributed to both the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army designated for specific aid to the Joplin disaster. 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 devastating hurricanes swept through the Caribbean killing thousands of people, injuring millions, and causing unimaginable suffering. Since its inception, the Organization has donated millions of dollars to build homes, schools, medical facilities and provide scholarships and economic opportunities to disaster victims in the Caribbean and the United States.

For more information, please contact Janelle Rosenfeld at (954) 938-7837 or [email protected]
