Humana and Concentra Support Oklahoma Tornado Victims

06/27/2013

Following last week’s devastating tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, the Humana Foundation announced it is making a combined contribution of up to $250,000 to the American Red Cross and the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

The Humana Foundation will donate $100,000 to the American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma to help care for victims’ immediate and ongoing needs related to the disaster. The Foundation also will match up to $50,000 in gifts from Humana associates to the American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma.

“Humana associates stand with the people of Oklahoma as they take on the emotionally wrenching job of recovering after this terrible storm,” said Bruce Broussard, Humana’s President and CEO. “We hope this gift will ease the suffering of the affected families and help them meet their needs for shelter, food and medical supplies.”

Humana is also donating $100,000 to the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, supporting nonprofit organizations that are assisting with longer-term rebuilding efforts.

As a result of the tornado, one of the most catastrophic in Oklahoma’s history, 24 were killed, including 10 children. Additionally, hundreds were injured, and entire neighborhoods were flattened, with the town of Moore suffering the majority of damage.

“Humana and the Humana Foundation have a long and proud history of helping the communities where our associates and our members live and work,” said Mike McCallister, Humana’s Chairman of the Board and Chairman of the Humana Foundation Board of Directors. “Our associates reach out in times of crisis, and our hearts are with the storm victims as they rebuild their lives.”

Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., is a leading health care company focused on improving America’s health, one patient at a time. Concentra colleagues join with the Humana team in lending its support and donations to help Oklahoma victims and their families recover and rebuild their communities.
