Insurers Step up to Help Sandy Victims

As a result of Superstorm Sandy, insurance companies we represent have pledged more than $123 million to support recovery efforts throughout the East Coast. Two thirds of the corporate aid comes via direct monetary donations to charity organizations, like the American Red Cross.

The following is a partial list of our companies that have contributed monetary and other aid to Sandy storm victims:
  • The Travelers Companies announced a donation of $200,000 to each of the following organizations: the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, the American Red Cross on Long Island, Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and the American Red Cross of Connecticut.
  • Nationwide Insurance sent humanitarian relief teams to New York and Pennsylvania to provide water, antibacterial wipes, personal hygiene items and other goods. The company also donated $300,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
  • The Hartford made a $250,000 contribution to the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts.
