Norris McLaughlin & Marcus Supports Red Cross Japan Relief Effort with $1,500 Donation
Bridgewater, NJ (April 26, 2011) – The Bridgewater-based law firm Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A. has committed a donation of $1,500 to the American Red Cross to support its disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific. Through it Denim Day program, where each employee donates $5 in exchange for privilege to wear jeans to work, the employees of the firm raised $750.00, which the firm is matching for a total firm contribution of $1,500.00. The donation from Norris McLaughlin & Marcus will be made on behalf of the firm’s Japanese clients and friends.
In addition to the donation made by the firm and its employees, the firm also encouraged other to make donations by linking to the dedicated American Red Cross donation page for relief for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami on Business Without Borders, its international business blog. The American Red Cross has made an initial contribution of $10 million to the Japanese Red Cross Society. The Japanese Red Cross is a highly experienced disaster relief organization with two million volunteers nationwide. Many local volunteers took immediate action following the disaster by distributing relief items, offering hot meals, clearing debris and providing medical transportation.
“Our prayers and thoughts are with our colleagues and all the people of Japan during this very difficult time. We hope our small contribution will aid the work of the American Red Cross and the Japanese Red Cross Society,” stated Robert C. Gabrielski, Chair of the firm’s Business Law and International Business Groups.
