Date:6/16/2008

WAUKESHA, Wis., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation LLC today announced it is donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross for the Wisconsin Flood Relief Effort.

Strong storms over the course of the past week in Wisconsin have caused widespread flooding and damage, closed roads, and destroyed homes throughout the state. To date, Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle has declared a state of emergency in 30 of the state's 72 counties. Staff from the American Red Cross are currently on the ground in all the affected counties, providing assistance to those impacted by the storms.

"Our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected by the recent storms and flooding," said Steve Martenet, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin. "The victims of these storms are our friends, family and neighbors. Our foundation is pleased to be able to provide this donation to help them get back on their feet, and we thank the Red Cross for all they are doing for our communities."

The funds will be used by the Red Cross to provide support and assistance to victims of the storms including: food, shelter and clothing; home clean up assistance; temporary housing; emergency medical assistance, such as prescription medication replacement, and help with eyeglass, denture, hearing aid replacement; and mental health services.

"We thank the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation for their generous donation which will greatly assist our Wisconsin Flood Relief Effort," said Tracey Sparrow, executive director of the American Red Cross in Southeastern Wisconsin. "When storms like these strike, the generosity of donors and volunteers can make all the difference. I am happy to count the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation as a leader in our relief effort."
