The Myers, Fletcher & Gordon family responded to Food For The Poor's call for assistance to Haiti in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew by handing over a cheque for $300,000 and numerous canned items on November 7 at its downtown Kingston law office.

Peter Goldson, the firm's managing partner, said emphatically, "Having been spared what could have been a devastating blow to Jamaica, we have to do our part to assist our neighbours in Haiti with their recovery". "Our Social Outreach Committee is mandated to identify areas where the firm may assist in the empowerment and upliftment of people, particularly the young among us. When the recommendation was made that we should include Haiti, our entire firm was quick to support," added Goldson.
