As Tennessee residents return to their homes following the recent flooding, the Nationwide Insurance Foundation announced a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to aid victims. The company is also offering tips for residents who will be re-entering water damaged homes.
“Our heart goes out to the entire state of Tennessee as families work to rebuild their lives after this unprecedented disaster,” said Brad Liggett, regional vice president for Nationwide’s South Central Region, based in Nashville. “We’re also working hard to support thousands of customers of Nationwide Insurance and Nationwide Financial following these terrible storms.”
The American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund will help meet immediate needs of victims of the recent flooding, providing food, shelter, emotional support, clean up kits and other assistance for Tennessee families and communities as they begin to rebuild their lives.

“Flood waters can take days to recede and can wreak devastating damage on homes, and the Red Cross is grateful for support from the Nationwide Insurance Foundation that will help us provide immediate emergency relief and other assistance to help people get back on their feet,” said Neal Litvack, chief development officer at the American Red Cross. “These contributions, along with the support of the American public, are critical during floods and similar disasters because they enable the Red Cross to provide help and hope to those in need.”
