Henry Schein is raising money for recovery and rebuilding efforts in response to the Australian bushfires, donated healthcare supplies and supporting its dental customers who may be impacted by the crisis.
The company and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation are seeding a 2020 Disaster Relief Fund with a $50,000 donation and will match employee contributions up to $25,000. Henry Schein also plans to donate up to $50,000 of healthcare products to relief organizations. Henry Schein Australia is donating a portion of its January sales to local relief efforts as well.
“Team Schein stands ready to assist our relief agency partners and local healthcare providers in their efforts to rebuild and recover from these terrible fires,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein.
“Our company has long been committed to supporting disaster preparedness and recovery, and we are working with our supplier partners and Team Schein members to provide relief agencies with the resources they need to support public health,” said Bergman.
The fund is not limited to Team Schein members. The public can donate via the Henry Schein Cares Foundation website. Also, checks can be made payable to the Henry Schein Cares Foundation and sent to Kate Sorrillo, Henry Schein Cares Foundation, 135 Duryea Road, Melville, New York 11747.
