(WHAS11) - Yum! Brands is stepping up to help Haiti in the aftermath of the earthquake.

The Louisville based company is donating more than $500,000 through the World Food Program on top of another company plan.

"We are matching a dollar for all of our associates around the world,” said Laura Mellillo, executive director of Yum! Brands Foundation. “We feel quite confident it will be a million dollar grant for those in need."

Yum! Brands is also working with local Red Cross chapters across the country to determine what they need.

They are working to organize blood drives and collect items for those in need.
