AmeriHealth Caritas Donates $50,000 to Aid North Carolinians Rebuilding Their Lives
Funds to address medicine, food, fuel, and other immediate needs for hurricane victims
North Carolinians and their communities are still feeling the impact of Hurricane Florence. In an effort to support the state in its continued recovery, AmeriHealth Caritas, a national leader in Medicaid managed care and other health solutions for those most in need, donated $50,000 to help North Carolina residents still recovering from the devastating effects of the storm.
The donation will help support victims with ongoing needs, including medicine, food, utilities, and rent/mortgage assistance. United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, a local partner of AmeriHealth Caritas, will assist in an expediting the funds to North Carolina organizations working on the ground.
"As a mission-driven organization, our aim is to help people most in need," said AmeriHealth Caritas Chairman and CEO Paul Tufano. "We have not forgotten the thousands of lives that were affected in Hurricane Florence’s wake. We hope our contribution to the state’s ongoing recovery will help communities rebuild and come back even stronger."
"When disaster strikes, the road to full recovery can be a long and arduous one for individuals and families in need of stability, but with support from community champions like AmeriHealth Caritas, communities can begin to heal and rebuild knowing they are not alone — now and for the future," said Bill Golderer, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
