American Red Cross - Medina County Chapter Honors Westfield Insurance for Support


American Red Cross At the annual meeting in June, Westfield Insurance was honored to be recognized for our local and national support of disaster relief and disaster preparedness.

Although Westfield is a long-time supporter of American Red Cross, the past 12 months have provided multiple opportunities to support the efforts of Red Cross.

In response to both the Northeast Ohio and east coast relief efforts following Superstorm Sandy as well as the Moore, OK tornados this spring, Westfield Insurance has donated a total of $35,000 to the American Red Cross’s “greatest need” fund.

As an insurance company, we know disasters happen all the time, which is why for the past two years Westfield has sponsored the Medina County chapter’s “Twin Sizzler” fundraiser. Held on the 4th of July each year, nearly 1,500 walkers, runners and cyclists meet on the square in Medina for a variety of competitive events. Now in its 38th year, the American Red Cross - Medina County chapter inherited the event from the local YWCA upon its closing, which has brought the Red Cross $55,000 over the last two years for disaster preparedness and disaster relief efforts.

Just last week Northeast Ohio Red Cross Chapters responded to one of the largest local response operations undertaken to date. After nearly a week of drenching rains followed by a violent storm, which swept through the area on July 10, there was a major mobilization of
volunteers, staff and resources to assist residents in the 22 counties it serves who were
affected by the resulting flooding and power outages. Click here for full details on the local
