Henry Schein, Its Supplier Partners, And The Henry Schein Cares Foundation Disburse More Than $1 Million In Financial And Health Care Product Donations To 11 Relief Organizations In The Wake Of Hurricane Sandy

MELVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, today announced that the Company, its supplier partners and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation have fulfilled its commitment to contribute more than $1 million in financial donations and essential health care supplies to 11 relief organizations serving communities affected by Hurricane Sandy, which struck areas of the Northeastern United States on October 29. The Henry Schein Cares Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that carries out its mission through financial and health care product donations that support health care professionals and community-based programs focused on prevention, wellness, and treatment; disaster preparedness and relief; and capacity building of health institutions that provide training and care.   

"We are proud to support the extraordinary work of the 11 organizations receiving our financial support and donations of health care supplies to assist in recovery efforts for communities affected by Hurricane Sandy," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Henry Schein. "These donations, supported by the generosity of our Team Schein Members and supplier partners, exemplify the deep commitment to giving back to society that has been part of the character of Henry Schein since we were founded eight decades ago."

The Company donated essential health care and hygiene products to relief organizations serving communities affected by the storm. The donations were made through Henry Schein Cares, the Company's global corporate social responsibility program, in partnership with the Company's supplier partners. Recipients included AmeriCares, Direct Relief International and Heart to Heart International.

The Company's Henry Schein Hurricane Relief Fund, established through the Henry Schein Cares Foundation, provided a pathway for Team Schein Members and others who were interested in supporting relief efforts to contribute. Henry Schein matched all donations contributed to this fund by Team Schein Members. All proceeds of the Fund were applied directly and completely to support the relief efforts of the following local organizations: 

In addition, the Company held drives for Team Schein Members to donate goods at its headquarter offices located in Melville, N.Y.  In all, the Team Schein Member campaign collected more than 2,900 pounds of food, clothing, shoes, coats, linens, diapers and other personal items for Island Harvest and The Salvation Army. Henry Schein Cares also provided "Hurricane Sandy Cleaning Kits" (including gloves, masks, gauze, paper towels, drape sheets, trash bags and hand sanitizer) to Team Schein Members who needed assistance in their personal clean-up efforts. 

In addition to its support of community relief efforts, Henry Schein supported health professionals affected by the storm in a myriad of ways. The Company opened a disaster relief hotline for dentists, physicians, and veterinarians who experienced operational, logistical, or financial issues as a result of the storm. The Company offered a host of financial services to affected customers, and Henry Schein Professional Practice Transitions provided licensing assistance and other guidance to health care practitioners who wished to practice out of state or relocate. Lastly, Henry Schein held an expert-led symposium, in conjunction with leading health care professional associations, examining all aspects of practice recovery. The symposium, entitled "Recovery Empowerment Symposium: Emerging from the Storm," was held in New York City on November 16 and was open to all interested health care professionals.

In the past, Henry Schein Cares has responded to other disasters including the Colorado Wildfires in the United States in 2012; the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, earthquake in New Zealand, and flood in Australia in 2011; the earthquakes in Haiti, China, Chile in 2010; the flood in Pakistan in 2010; the cyclone in Myanmar and earthquake in China in 2008; Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005; the 2004 Asian tsunami; the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan; the conflict in Israel, Lebanon, and Palestine; and September 11.

About Henry Schein Cares and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation Henry Schein Cares, Henry Schein's global corporate social responsibility program, stands on four pillars: engaging Team Schein Members to reach their potential, ensuring accountability by extending ethical business practices to all levels within Henry Schein, promoting environmental sustainability, and expanding access to health care for underserved and at-risk communities around the world. Health care activities supported by Henry Schein Cares focus on three main areas: advancing wellness, building capacity in the delivery of health care services, and assisting in emergency preparedness and relief. Firmly rooted in a deep commitment to social responsibility and the concept of enlightened self-interest championed by Benjamin Franklin, the philosophy behind Henry Schein Cares is a vision of "doing well by doing good." Through the work of Henry Schein Cares to enhance access to care for those in need, the Company believes that it is furthering its long-term success.

Established in 2008, Henry Schein Cares Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, works to foster, support, and promote dental, medical, and animal health by helping to increase access to care for communities around the world.
