Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief

For over two decades, Henry Schein Cares has been strengthening disaster preparedness and supporting relief efforts worldwide through nonprofit partnerships, public-private partnerships, product donations, and Team Schein Member volunteerism.

2023 Hawaii Wildfire Support

In the wake of the devastation caused by the wildfires in Hawaii, Henry Schein is raising money for recovery and rebuilding efforts, donating needed health care supplies, and supporting its customers who may be impacted by the ongoing crisis. The company and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation are donating an initial $25,000 cash donation and will match employee contributions up to $25,000. In addition, Henry Schein plans to donate up to $125,000 worth of health care product to relief organizations. For more details of our support, see our press release here. We remain committed to helping health happen for the people of Hawaii who were affected.

We will again partner with trusted and long-standing disaster relief and recovery charities to ensure the availability of the critical supplies and resources required to provide health care within affected communities. The organizations listed below are trusted partners of Henry Schein Cares, who are included for informational purposes only.
