MAXIMUS Supports Tornado Relief Efforts In Oklahoma With Donation To The American Red Cross

Stocks in this article: MMS

MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that the MAXIMUS Foundation has made a donation of $21,860 to the American Red Cross to support its response to the devastating tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma.

“MAXIMUS conducts operations in Oklahoma City, just miles away from Moore, Oklahoma. As soon as our employees heard about the tornado they quickly donated to show support to the victims of this disaster," commented MAXIMUS Foundation Chairman John F. Boyer. “The money raised is from employee contributions, both locally and across the nation, and corporate matching funds. We are glad to assist the victims by making this donation to the American Red Cross.”

In Oklahoma, the American Red Cross has provided thousands in Moore, Shawnee and other devastated communities with a safe place to stay, a warm meal, relief supplies and emotional support. According to the American Red Cross, and its partners, they have served 141,000 snacks and meals; distributed more than 29,000 relief items like disaster clean-up kits; and provided over 6,300 health services and mental health checks. Shelters and relief centers are still open for those displaced by the events.

“The American Red Cross is so grateful to MAXIMUS and its employees for your generous gift to help the men, women and children of Oklahoma after the devastating tornadoes last month,” said Linda Mathes, Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region. “The Red Cross continues to provide assistance and comfort with food, relief supplies, health services and emotional support — we will be there for people in these communities in the months ahead. This support makes a big difference in the lives of many people.”
