Earlier this week, more than 50 tornadoes struck Alabama, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. Counties in Alabama suffered extensive damage and casualties from an extremely destructive tornado with a path over a mile wide.
Ford Fund has been in touch with our disaster relief partners and is providing support through our ongoing financial commitment to the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program. By providing funds at the beginning of the year, Ford Fund and other corporate partners allow the Red Cross to have the means to monitor and respond to disasters immediately- regardless of where they strike.
The Red Cross has deployed nearly 600 responders in the South to operate shelters, serve meals, distribute relief supplies and provide mental health services.
