Major companies making large donations to help tornado victims

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – American Red Cross staff spent much of Thursday working the phones trying drum up donations.

One group was calling the organization’s corporate partners. For example, they called Anthem which then donated $50,000

They also reached out to Home Depot, Kroger, and Marsh hoping to get supplies and food.The money donated will also help purchase those items but some of it will go straight to the victims in the form of “client assist cards.”

“It’s like a pre-loaded debit card,” said Marcy Zunk, Director of Development. “So they can go out and purchase the things that they need, the immediate needs fo their family and it looks different for every single family.”

If you’d like to make a donation you can call 317-684-1441.
