  • Sep 01, 2017

Foresters Financial has donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross to help families who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

"Our thoughts go out to our members and the families whose lives have been turned upside down by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas," said Chris Stranahan, International Fraternal President, Foresters Financial. "Foresters sincerely hopes our support for our members and of the American Red Cross relief effort will help during this difficult time, and aid people in rebuilding their lives and communities."

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 Texas and Louisiana.

As part of our commitment to doing more to help those affected, measures have also been implemented to support our members through these challenging times.

Emergency Assistance has been offered to all eligible members in both Louisiana and Texas who are experiencing personal hardship as a result of Hurricane Harvey. They are able to contact Foresters to receive grants to help with immediate needs.

Any loans or withdrawals requests from these members will also be given priority handling.
