The Boeing Company announced today that it contributed $100,000 to the Taiwan Red Cross Organization in response to the earthquake that struck Taiwan on Sept. 21. Additionally, the Boeing Employees Community Funds of California and Utah donated $10,000 and $1,000 respectively. Boeing employees throughout the country and around the world are continuing to send donations to their community funds to help the people of Taiwan.
"It is our hope that any amount we can contribute to the Taiwanese will help them endure this terrible quake that claimed so many lives," said John Warner, senior vice president and chief administrative officer of The Boeing Company. "This contribution, in addition to the thousands of dollars our employees have given, is a testament to Boeing employees' generosity and the company's dedication to help those whose lives were shattered by the recent earthquake."
The Employees Community Fund is the world's largest employee-owned charitable organization. The Fund is locally managed and controlled at Boeing sites, where employees elect board members and determine how local contributions will be distributed.
