Thank You Matson Foundation!

Matson has been a wonderful partner and supporter of Sea Mercy and our programs in the South Pacific (see below). We are so grateful for their continued support and belief in our organization and volunteers and in other organizations they support across the South Pacific.

Dear Mr. Hackett:

Since our founding in 1882, Matson has supported the needs of the communities we serve and in which our employees live and work. In 2012, we became an independent, publicly traded, Hawaii-headquartered corporation and established a charitable giving program. Since then, Matson has supported Sea Mercy on several occasions.

Earlier this year, Matson made a commitment to support Sea Mercy's medical response operations in Fiji following Cyclone Winston, the strongest storm ever recorded having impacted the island nation. On behalf of Matson, please accept the enclosed donation check in the amount of $5,000 directed to fund disaster relief operations OR routine medical and dental efforts in Fiji, as your team management deems most appropriate. We appreciate the opportunity to be a supporter.

We extend our appreciation to you and your fellow staff and the many medical and dental professionals who volunteer for Sea Mercy. Best wishes for an uneventful 2017 in the South Pacific.
