Miami, FL, January 10, 2006 — Buchanan Ingersoll shareholder Richard A. Morgan is spearheading a sporting goods drive to benefit Food For The Poor (FFP), a large and well-established relief organization providing services throughout the Caribbean and Central America. The sporting goods drive will benefit underprivileged children in these areas. The goods will be sent overseas this month.

FFP raises funds and provides direct assistance, usually by purchasing specifically requested materials and distributing them through churches and charity organizations already operating in areas of need. Since its founding in 1982, FFP has distributed more than $2.3 billion in food, medical, educational, building and small business supplies to 16 countries in the Caribbean and Central America. It supports programs that teach residents how to raise livestock and develop small businesses, and it provides agricultural assistance to independent farmers.

Along with his work for FFP, Morgan is also involved with Switchboard Miami, a private, nonprofit, multi-service agency that provides the Miami-Dade community with comprehensive 24-hour telephone crisis counseling, suicide prevention, information and referral services. He also serves on the board of the Friends for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami, where he served as the co-chair for the annual fundraising event in 2005. Morgan also coaches various youth sports teams throughout the year.
