Dade Paper Helps Haiti
the days following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Dade Paper
mobilized efforts to help the troubled island nation. A container of
cleaning supplies and disposables was loaded in Miami and shipped to
Port-au-Prince. Dade Paper employees across the all branch locations
also contributed to the effort by donating funds, clothing, food and
first aid supplies all bound for Haiti. But the images and news of
human suffering continued to pull at the heartstrings of this family
That is when a unique opportunity presented itself for Dade Paper to help out on the front lines, in the tent-based hospitals built and staffed by the University of Miami doctors. Hugs 4 Haiti was established by Neighbors 4 Neighbors and CBS reporter Michele Gillen. The effort provided thousands of Teddy Bears to the children injured and orphaned by the earthquake.
Dade Paper sponsored the program and provided warehousing and transportation, delivering the bears to the weekly airlifts that flew volunteer medical personnel to Haiti. The positive results of this program can be seen on the faces of those children who received the bears. Please take a moment to view the Hugs 4 Haiti video.
