AT&T donates USD 1 mln to new Sandy relief organisation

Friday 9 November 2012 | 10:55 CET | News
AT&T has made a USD 1 million contribution to a newly-formed nonprofit organisation founded by New Jersey governor Chris Christie supporting relief and care efforts following Superstorm Sandy. AT&T's contribution, together with support from other donors, will enable this newly created relief organisation to provide shelter, food and other necessities to people impacted and displaced by the storm. The New Jersey contribution builds on the AT&T Foundation's USD 250,000 grant to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund and USD 225,000 in grants to local nonprofits in the Tri-state region providing immediate relief. AT&T's disaster response team has been fully engaged and working around the clock to ensure the flow of mobile and fixed-line services in the affected areas. People in affected areas are invited to visit any of AT&T's approximately 400 retail store locations now open through the Northeast to charge their devices. Details on open stores and temporary/mobile charging stations will be posted as soon as available at att.com. AT&T mobile customers can make a USD 10 donation for Hurricane Sandy relief by texting to the non-profit organsations. Customers who would like to contribute more can text up to five times for a total donation of USD 50. One hundred percent of any donation will be paid to the customer's designated charity and the customer will be charged for the donation via the customer's monthly AT&T bill. AT&T will extend the late-payment window for mobile and fixed-line customers who are behind, waive late payment fees and will not disconnect services because of non-payment.
