Ultimately, the best response to a disaster occurs before the disaster–it involves being prepared. In 2018, Cigna recognized National Preparedness Month during September by partnering with Good360 through a Preparathon. Cigna employees in Bloomfield, Denver, and Houston collected personal hygiene products and packed 900 shelter kits to support displaced families during disaster.
Due to the immediate need, Good360 deployed the kits packed by Cigna to those affected by Hurricane Michael and Hurricane Florence. During 2018, the Cigna Foundation made donations to the American Red Cross and Give2Asia to assist with their relief efforts for the California wildfires, Kerala flooding, Hurricane Florence, and the Indonesian earthquake and tsunami. In addition, Cigna Foundation matched all donations by Cigna employees in support of disaster relief.
We continue to support Emergency Response and Preparedness efforts–living out our mission, dedicated to helping people around the world achieve healthier and more secure lives in their communities.
