Boeing announced on Wednesday that it would spend 1 million U.S. dollars from the Boeing Charitable Trust to assist with disaster recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
Hurricane Ida was a category four hurricane that hit Louisiana in August and September 2021. It caused an estimated US$50 billion in damages and led to the deaths of 116 people.
The $1 Million includes a 500,000-dollar donation to the American Red Cross that will help to bring shelter, relief supplies, food, water, and other necessities to the areas across the South, including Louisiana and the Northeast United States.
“Our thoughts are with all our friends, neighbors, and teammates in Louisiana and the Northeast who are dealing with the unprecedented impacts from Hurricane Ida,” said Jennifer Lowe, Boeing’s vice president of National Strategy & Engagement.”
