Date:1/21/2008

Culture of Volunteerism Allows Organization to Continue Post-Katrina

Commitment to the Region for Third Consecutive Year

OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of an ongoing commitment to help rebuild the communities devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita three years ago, Kaiser Permanente is organizing a group of 60 employee and physician volunteers representing every Kaiser Permanente region, on two seven-day service projects focused on assisting people in the New Orleans and Biloxi, Miss. areas. In cooperation with Points of Light & Hands On Network, Kaiser Permanente physicians and employees will work on various recovery projects including home rehabilitation, community resource restoration and environmental restoration. The two weeks of service in the Gulf Coast area represent the longest corporate commitment that Points of Light & Hands On Network has coordinated since Hurricane Katrina hit the region in August 2005.

Kaiser Permanente employees nationwide have been encouraged to celebrate the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday honoring Dr. King's legacy by spending the day providing service to their communities. These 60 employees have chosen to take the commitment to service even further. The first group of 30 volunteers will kick-off service in New Orleans on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 21 and continue through January 26, and a second group of 30 volunteers will serve in the Mississippi Gulf Coast from a home base in Biloxi, Miss., January 27 through February 2.

Baxter, Ph.D., senior vice president of Community Benefit at Kaiser Permanente. "As part of that mission, we continue to honor the pledge we made in 2005 to help with the long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts after Hurricanes Katrina and Ri
