Boeing Pledges $1M for Harvey Disaster Relief

Boeing has pledged to give the American Red Cross a $1 million donation through the aerospace and defense contractor’s charitable trust to assist Texas communities hit by Hurricane Harvey.

The company said Tuesday it will match employee contributions made to the humanitarian organization’s disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of storm.

“Our thoughts are with all our neighbors and teammates throughout Texas who are dealing with the unprecedented impact from Hurricane Harvey,” said Dennis Muilenburg, president and CEO of Boeing.

Boeing has nearly 4,000 employees across the state and donated more than $3.2 million for charitable purposes there during 2016.
