Toshiba America

said Thursday it is working with several prominent Haitian earthquake relief organizations to help them facilitate medium- to long-term reconstruction efforts, including housing, job creation and communication needs.

The Toshiba is making in-kind product donations to organizations including Habitat for Humanity International, MercyCorps and Yéle Haiti Foundation for the efforts. Donations include Toshiba laptops, mini notebooks, portable camcorders, uninterruptable power-supplying devices, TVs and photocopiers.

The product donations follow Toshiba Corporation's initial pledge of $100,000 made in January 2010 to help relieve suffering caused by the devastating Haitian Earthquake.

To commemorate the effort, Yoshihide Fujii, Toshiba America chairman and CEO, recently presented a certificate to Hugh Locke, president of Yéle Haiti Foundation (right), representing the in-kind product donations.
