Lilly Supports Victims of Oklahoma Tornado

Our hearts go out to the victims of last week’s devastating tornado that injured 250 and killed 24 in Moore, Oklahoma.

The Lilly Foundation is matching Lilly U.S. employees’ donations of $25 or more to the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army. In addition to monetary contributions, Lilly is also working in partnership with Heart to Heart and Direct Relief to donate insulin to victims in need.

The tornado ripped through the small Oklahoma town on Monday, May 20, destroying whole neighborhoods, leveling schools and greatly damaging the community’s only hospital. Shortly after, President Obama issued a federal disaster declaration for the state of Oklahoma.

We wish the entire community strength and healing.
