Mike Short, Allstate Agency Owner, on how Allstate and The Allstate Foundation announced that up to $1.2 million for Sandy relief and recovery efforts would be available through the creation of a recovery fund and a company match.

The new fund, supported through a $1 million allocation from The Allstate Foundation, supported local nonprofit organizations in affected areas that had capacity and capabilities but needed resources to help people rebuild their lives. The Allstate Foundation used its national reach into local communities to identify eligible nonprofit organizations. Local relationships of Allstate agents were leveraged with awards made to organizations where agency owners volunteer. The identified nonprofits were eligible for grants up to $5,000.

"We take a comprehensive approach to helping communities rebuild after catastrophes," said Thomas J. Wilson, Allstate CEO, chairman and president. "Thousands of our employees and agency owners are working around the clock in difficult conditions to help customers find places to live, get clothes to wear, connect with loved ones and assess their damage. We will continue to support them as they begin to rebuild their lives."

"We understand insurance alone can't undo the damage, particularly after such a devastating storm," Wilson continued. "We have a history of addressing the broader impacts by proactively engaging nonprofit partners with local Allstate agencies after major disasters such as Hurricane Katrina or Sandy. This is what makes us proud to be a part of Allstate."
