Foresters extends its help to members in Florida and Puerto Rico by donating an additional $50,000 to the American Red Cross

  • Sep 14, 2017

Last month, Foresters Financial donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross to help families who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas. You can find out more about our assistance to Texas and Louisiana here.

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Foresters Financial has extended its help to members in Florida, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Georgia and South Carolina as well and has donated an additional $50,000 to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Irma.

The American Red Cross is a humanitarian charitable organisation dedicated to preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilising the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Donations could provide relief for those affected in the form of emergency food, clothing, shelter, personal services and other necessities that assist with recovery and resiliency.

Foresters Financial also offers Emergency Assistance to its members in Florida, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Georgia and South Carolina.

Moreover, as part of our commitment to doing more to help those affected, measures have been implemented to support our members through these challenging times. Eligible members living in the affected area who are experiencing significant personal hardship as a result of Hurricane Irma can receive grants to help with immediate needs.
