Stocks in this article: USNA





SALT LAKE CITY, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The USANA True Health Foundation (NYSE: USNA) is contributing ¥1.7 million renminbi (RMB) — equivalent to $275,000 USD  — in product and cash to assist the victims of the devastating April 20 earthquake in China, which killed 192 people, injured 11,000 and left 50,000 homeless. Products will be sent directly to Lushan, China, to provide health relief to children affected by the magnitude-6.6 quake. A significant cash donation will also be given to the China Charity Federation for provisions, medical assistance and other urgent needs.

"Families, and especially children, in China are suffering greatly from this disaster and are in desperate need of life-giving support," says Elaine Pace, president of the USANA True Health Foundation. "Our foundation is pleased to promptly serve the victims of this horrible tragedy with necessary funding and products to help maintain the health of this region."

Since the USANA True Health Foundation was established in March 2012, it has given $100,000 in aid to disaster victims and malnourished children all over the world. In August 2012, when Hurricane Sandy swept through the Caribbean and East Coast of the U.S., and in November 2012, when the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was hit by  Typhoon Bopha, the foundation responded quickly to provide the necessary supplies to those in the hard-hit regions. Additionally, USANA Health Sciences Inc. and the USANA True Health Foundation have given more than $18 million to feed hungry children globally over a span of more than 15 years.

"We are grateful for the support that those in the earthquake zone of Sichuan, China will be receiving from this donation," says Matthew Estes, president of BabyCare, USANA's subsidiary in China.
