Scripps Networks Interactive Donates $250,000 To Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Efforts

Scripps Networks Interactive – the parent company of Food Network, Cooking Channel, HGTV, DIY Network, Travel Channel and Great American Country – announced today a corporate donation of $250,000 to the American Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Along with this corporate donation, Scripps Networks Interactive is matching dollar-for-dollar employee donations to the American Red Cross through its corporate social responsibility program “Change the World.”

“It’s difficult to truly fathom the extremely challenging circumstances Hurricane Sandy left in its wake. With a brand family that’s led by Food Network and HGTV, we know the importance of basics such as a warm meal and shelter from the cold, and we understand the deep and lasting impact of having those taken away from you,” said Ken Lowe, chairman, president and CEO of Scripps Networks Interactive.

“New York and the surrounding areas are home to our brands Food Network, Cooking Channel and CityEats, along with hundreds of Scripps Networks Interactive employees, their families and loved ones,” Lowe added. “We mobilized our resources to quickly assist our employees with immediate needs, and are now working to reach out and assist the surrounding community as they begin to recover and heal.”

Along with financial support, the company’s employees have been collecting needed provisions to aid in the recovery efforts including bedding, personal care items and toys and stuffed animals to help comfort children. Food Network, Cooking Channel, HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country have been running public service announcements on air and online encouraging viewers to support relief and rebuilding efforts.

Scripps Networks Interactive is also working with other corporate social responsibility partners including Share Our Strength and Rebuilding Together to support ongoing recovery efforts related to food and shelter.
