US Airways is
coordinating a voluntary donation campaign for its employees in an effort
to provide aid for those devastated by the Asian tsunami disaster. The corporate effort is in cooperation with employees systemwide to manage
the collection and distribution of donations.
“Our employees have overwhelmingly voiced their desire to assist with
tsunami relief efforts, and as a company, we are eager to aid in the
relief efforts for millions of victims in any way that we can,” said Chris
Chiames, US Airways senior vice president of corporate affairs.
US Airways has identified The American Red Cross and Samaritan Children’s
Home, a non-profit organization that is working to rebuild an orphanage
devastated by the tsunami in Sri Lanka. All donations will be evenly
distributed between The American Red Cross & Samaritan Children’s Home.
