American Airlines brings people together from across the nation. But we have a commitment to the communities where we work, live and play, too. Through our support of Red Cross disaster relief efforts, American and its employees help provide support to families affected by the unexpected.
Severe spring weather, massive flooding in the South and with hurricane season officially starting this month, the Red Cross will be counting on precious resources and to aid those affected by inclement weather. It is now more important than ever to donate time, talent and funds.
Join American in support of the Red Cross. By donating miles to the American Airlines Miles of Hope program, your generosity can touch thousands of lives and give hope to families — even in the face of disaster.
Our employees are leaders in helping with relief. For example, in Flint, Michigan, employees volunteered to help the community by distributing water and support. In Philadelphia, employees help the Red Cross House, which helps families displaced by disaster, through a variety of volunteering efforts. And in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the American team hosts one of the country’s largest blood drives. Thanks to blood drives like this, the American Red Cross maintains 40 percent of the nation’s necessary blood supply.
As an Annual Disaster Giving Partner, American Airlines gives more than $1 million to support the American Red Cross each year. Through combined donations of cash, in-kind support and volunteer efforts, we have become part of a select group of leading corporations that provide the highest level of support to the American Red Cross preparedness and relief efforts.
The American Airlines Miles of Hope program provides worldwide support for organizations that help supply the basic needs of the most vulnerable population. Focusing on food, clothing, shelter, health, education and employment, the program works to benefit organizations that provide a strategic focus on children and/or those afflicted by unexpected adversity.
