American Express Supports Midwest And Southern U.S. Tornadoes Disaster Relief Efforts

New York, NY – WEBWIRE

The following memo from Madge Thomas, President, American Express Foundation was sent today to all U.S. American Express colleagues:

Multiple tornadoes swept across the Midwest and Southern U.S. over the weekend causing devastating damage. American Express will support communities impacted by contributing to relief efforts on the ground in Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas with a $50,000 donation to the American Red Cross. The American Express Foundation will also match eligible colleague contributions toward disaster relief through the American Express Match program.

This donation will be used to support the immediate needs of those who have been injured or displaced, provide temporary shelter and meals for first responders and affected families, distribute clean-up supplies, and provide mental health support and other assistance.  

How You Can Help – Gift Matching and Volunteering

You can find a list of recommended charities on our Match page that are supporting the communities affected, including the American Red Cross. U.S. colleagues can also learn more about becoming an American Red Cross Disaster Response Volunteer.

Colleague Support

We know some of our colleagues’ families and friends may have been affected by the storms. The company offers several resources to help you in times of need, including the Healthy Minds Program, which offers counselor support that is confidential and free to colleagues and their families. 

We appreciate your support.
