As relief efforts continue following the catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti, TNT Fireworks today announced the company and its employees have donated more than $30,000 to aid earthquake victims. The TNT Fireworks donation program, which ran through January 25, encouraged employees to make cash donations to reputable organizations providing food, water and supplies in Haiti. TNT Fireworks then matched all employee donations.

“It is imperative that these donations get to Haiti as soon as possible,” explains Glasgow. “Food, water and shelter are critical needs right now, and we want to make sure our donations provide assistance to those actively participating in the relief effort. “
