American again joins forces with American Red Cross to assist those who are suddenly affected by disaster. Whether it’s a severe storm stateside or an earthquake thousands of miles away, with the dedication and donations of our customers and employees, the Red Cross is ready to help where it's needed most. By pledging donations, the Red Cross is about to immediately respond.
American employees have a long history of volunteering time, talent and funds to the important relief organization. From donating blood at company-sponsored blood drives to helping deliver supplies, employees are passionate about assisting with the organization. When tornados struck Oklahoma earlier this year, the response from local employees was immediate.
“Given the destructive nature of the weather in Oklahoma, our employees are keenly aware of how disasters affect communities and they are always wanting to help," said Bill Collins, Vice President – Base Maintenance, TUL. “Our employees are passionate about donating their time and resources to the American Red Cross to help provide life-saving disaster relief.”
The Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 events each year, providing shelter, food and emotional support to those who have been impacted by a disaster. With the help of American employees and customers, the organization is able to provide immediate assistance.
Please join us in supporting the Red Cross by donating funds or miles. American will reward your generosity with an AAdvantage®
bonus mile offer. With your help, we can all be Red Cross ready.
