Children of America, LLC Commits $10 Thousand to Support Hurricane Ida Relief and Recovery Efforts Children of America Partners with The American Red Cross to Help Victims of IDA

Delray Beach, FL, September 24, 2021

Children of America, LLC (COA) has announced its partnership with the American Red Cross to help bring aid to the victims of Hurricane Ida. As hundreds of families were affected by devastating floods and storms reaching historic levels, COA with its multi-location businesses will work with local communities to help raise funds.


“Our local businesses and The American Red Cross are coming together as one to support our friends in Louisiana following Hurricane Ida,” said CEO Ted Hockenberry. “We are honored to work alongside them to help support the community during this challenging time.”


COA will donate $10,000 and match 50% of every donation submitted. Ted Hockenberry continued, "Many of these families consist of young children whose lives have been changed forever, so it’s only natural that we step up to help in any we can."

The Red Cross estimates that it will spend more than $9 million helping people affected by the midwestern tornadoes and floods in Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio and Wisconsin. Thanks to donors, the Red Cross has received $6.5 million to help people affected by tornadoes and floods. Over 470,000 meals and snacks were served, and emergency supplies were delivered to over 30,000 households. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
