When news of the disaster in Haiti first starting hitting the media, LAZ employees began asking "What can we do to help?" Doctors Without Borders was selected as the charity to which funds should be given and the information was disseminated throughout the ranks at LAZ Parking. Within a few weeks, a total of $25,747 was collected through the generosity that is a hallmark of the LAZ Parking culture.
