(LIBERTY), a dental benefits administrator serving members throughout the areas impacted by Hurricane Idalia, today announced it is donating $10,000 for Hurricane Idalia relief efforts to Florida Disaster Fund, which supports response and recover activities during times of disaster and recovery.

“I am so proud of our LIBERTY Outreach Team for taking immediate action and working with our partners to aid in hurricane recovery efforts throughout the state,” said Michael Carrillo, Vice President, East Coast State Markets. “Even items like toothbrushes and toothpaste can be useful, especially when you don’t have them.”
