U.S. Bank ATMs Accepting Donations for American Red Cross Disaster Relief in
Light of Oklahoma Tornado
MINNEAPOLIS -- May 22, 2013
U.S. Bank customers can make donations to the American Red Cross at more than
2,000 U.S. Bank ATMs in 25 states to support relief efforts across the country
like the devastating tornadoes that hit Oklahoma and the Midwest this week.
The funds will help the Red Cross meet the needs of those affected by the
tornadoes and other disasters.
U.S. Bank ATMs will accept contributions through Thursday, June 6, 2013. In
addition, the U.S. Bank Foundation will match donations made by its employees
to the Red Cross through the company’s matching gift fund, doubling the impact
of their donations.
“The impact of the tornadoes in Oklahoma and the Midwest was devastating and
the road to recovery will be long for many families. Through the generosity of
its partners such as U.S. Bank and its customers and employees, the American
Red Cross can quickly respond with shelter, food and comfort now, and lasting
support as residents move toward recovery,” said Neal Litvack, chief
development officer for the Red Cross.
In addition, the public can make $10 donations to American Red Cross Disaster
Relief by texting REDCROSS to: 90999.
U.S. Bank and the Red Cross recently established a partnership that includes
an annual commitment of $250,000 from U.S. Bank that will help the Red Cross
prepare for vital disaster services. The partnership also established U.S.
Bank Employee Awareness and Preparedness Fairs for the company’s 65,000
employees. U.S. Bank will continue to work closely with the Red Cross
throughout the year to provide opportunities for employees to donate blood and
volunteer time to the charity.
