The Selective Group Foundation Donates $30,000 to Iowa Flood Recovery Effort

BRANCHVILLE, N.J. — Flood relief efforts across the Midwest received a much-needed boost this week, as

Selective Insurance Group, Inc., announced a $30,000 donation to the American Red Cross from The Selective Group Foundation. The donation will assist with flood relief efforts across the Midwest. The company also launched an employee giving campaign that will raise additional money to benefit victims of the flooding.

On behalf of Selective's Independent Agents across the state of Iowa and all of Selective's employees, The Selective Group Foundation will make financial contributions to Red Cross chapters in Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Des Moines and the Quad Cities area.

"We are proud to have Selective as a valuable partner as we continue to deliver upon the promise to bring hope and relief to thousands of Iowans in need," says Jodie Warth, chief development officer of the Central Iowa Chapter. "The Red Cross relies on companies like Selective. Investments such as this assure that Red Cross disaster relief services are immediately provided to families suffering loss."

Selective Insurance Group, Inc. is a holding company for seven property and casualty insurance companies rated "A+" (Superior) by A.M. Best. Through independent agents, the insurance companies offer primary and alternative market insurance for commercial and personal risks, and flood insurance underwritten by the National Flood Insurance Program. Other subsidiaries of the company provide claims, human resources and risk management services.

Selective's donations were inspired in part by agents, who have been working with those impacted by the flooding since day one. These communities need support now more than ever, and it's nice to see Selective taking the lead.
