Supporting Cedars-Sinai’s Hurricane Relief Efforts

By Andy Ortiz
Senior Vice President, Human Resources & Organization Development

News coverage of Hurricane Florence and the devastation across the Carolinas has been heart-wrenching. The historic storm has caused catastrophic flooding across the region, leaving hundreds of thousands without power and thousands displaced from their homes and living in temporary shelters. Damage estimates are expected to total between $17 billion and $22 billion.

Cedars-Sinai is eager to help. As we’ve seen with other natural disasters, our employees are ready to lend assistance. If you would like to contribute to hurricane relief efforts, you can do so online through a dedicated Cedars-Sinai webpage of the American Red Cross. Employees also may drop off checks at the lockbox in the Community Relations Office, Suite 2416, until Friday, Sept. 28. Checks should be made out to "American Red Cross," and the notes section should designate "Hurricane Florence."

To maximize the impact of our employees’ generosity, Cedars-Sinai will match donations dollar for dollar, up to $10,000. Proceeds will be directed to areas of greatest need.

We have a proud tradition at Cedars-Sinai of caring for others in times of adversity. We have given generously to support relief efforts after disasters like Hurricane Harvey last year and earthquakes in Ecuador and Japan in 2016. Our desire to help others in moments of great need truly reflects Cedars-Sinai’s core values and mission.

Thank you for everything you do to make Cedars-Sinai a world-class organization we all are proud to serve.
