Date:4/16/2009

This is the third consecutive year the Foundation has contributed this unique grant to the Red Cross.

The $1.7 million grant from the Nationwide Foundation, an independent corporation funded by Nationwide companies, will be distributed among national Red Cross headquarters and 15 chapters. Some of the funds will be used to purchase blood mobiles for Red Cross blood services regions located in Raleigh, N.C.; Atlanta, Ga.; and Columbus, Ohio. The three new blood mobiles will help the Red Cross collect approximately 4,000 to 6,000 units of blood per year.

"The Nationwide Foundation's generous investment in disaster preparedness and response enables the Red Cross to mobilize materials and human resources before disaster strikes, like our recent flood response in Fargo, N.D.," said Gail McGovern, President and CEO of the American Red Cross. "Nationwide has also supported the Red Cross blood program for more than 60 years, and the three new blood mobiles purchased with this grant will be on the road each and every day helping us collect blood for hospital patients who desperately need it."

"Nationwide is proud of its long partnership with the American Red Cross," said Chad Jester, President of the Nationwide Foundation. "Nationwide is in the business of helping people rebuild their lives when tragedy strikes. The Red Cross does the same thing. When we're helping customers with claims after a hurricane, the Red Cross is right there in the same community providing humanitarian support. The partnership is a perfect fit."
