USAA Donates $1.25 Million to Assist Those Impacted by Hurricane Ian
USAA has committed $1.25 million to seven organizations enabling additional relief, support and recovery for the millions of Americans impacted by Hurricane Ian. American Red Cross and Team Rubicon will each receive $500,000, and five U.S. military aid societies will receive a combined $250,000.
“Our military members are always prepared to protect our nation, and part of our company’s mission is to respond to their needs during natural disasters like Hurricane Ian,” said Wayne Peacock, president and CEO of USAA. “This storm has left millions reeling from its catastrophic effects, and it isn’t over, yet. We want to ensure we are doing everything we can to help the military and our local communities get back on their feet.”
The American Red Cross is already on the ground assisting with basic needs such as food, water and shelter. Team Rubicon is assisting with disaster response efforts, including route clearance. Their volunteers are ready to provide home muck outs and expedient home repair. The five military aid societies will provide emergency financial assistance to current servicemembers who need assistance due to impacts from Hurricane Ian.
“Our teams are working around the clock to ensure basic needs are provided for families in areas impacted by Hurricane Ian,” said Sunny Howard, chief development officer at American Red Cross. “The additional support provided by USAA will allow us to meet the urgent needs of those affected and focus on providing safe shelter, food, emotional support, first aid and health services.”
In 2022, USAA, The USAA Foundation, Inc. and USAA Bank have committed a total of more than $50 million in contributions to support its local communities and promote military family resilience – ensuring that service members, veterans, and their families have the skills and resources to withstand, recover and grow from challenges.
