FORT WORTH, Texas, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ten days after announcing the
start of the program, RadioShack Corporation today reported it has collected
more than $150,000 in donations to the American Red Cross. The donations were
made by RadioShack customers at the point of sale at all RadioShack stores
nationwide and will directly benefit victims of tornadoes in Texas and
Oklahoma.

"We are proud and very pleased that our consumers have contributed $150,000
for relief efforts," said Joe Magnacca, chief executive officer. "In light of
last week's second wave of deadly storms in Oklahoma, it is clear this help is
still desperately needed. By partnering with the American Red Cross on these
donations, we know the money will be used for relief efforts in affected
communities."

RadioShack is also delivering the first shipments of its own donated product
including mobile phones, chargers, power inverters, batteries, flashlights and
other emergency items to affected areas beginning today, June 3. Additionally,
employees at RadioShack headquarters launched a donation drive last week for
household items needed by victims in Texas and Oklahoma, and hundreds of items
have already been collected.

Donations will continue to be accepted at all RadioShack stores in the United
States. When checking out, customers continue to have the option of donating
$1, $5 or $10 to directly benefit tornado victims in Oklahoma and Texas. The
donations will go to the American Red Cross and will help cover the cost of
emergency shelter, food, recovery and other assistance to families impacted by
the storms.
