American Airlines has partnered with the Red Cross for many years and is part of a select group of leading corporations that provide the highest level of support to American Red Cross preparedness and relief efforts. Already in 2016, American has donated more than 20 million miles and raised more than $200,000 for their relief efforts. American is also one of its Annual Disaster Giving Program members. This means that we enable the Red Cross to pre-invest in disaster relief, ensuring they can pre-position supplies, secure shelters, maintain vehicles and train volunteers nationwide, so they are always ready to respond, day and night.
The Red Cross has welcomed more than 25,000 people to its shelters throughout the eastern seaboard and they expect that number to more than double by nightfall.
With the unique ability to activate immediately and assess critical needs during times of disaster, the Red Cross, has the infrastructure in place and relationships with local and foreign governments allowing immediate accessibility to affected areas with approved relief items.
