Delta Air Lines is contributing $250,000 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Ida relief to support those impacted by the storm.
The contribution is in addition to the $1 million grant to the American Red Cross as an Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) partner.
Delta employees and customers are also contributing to the American Red Cross in support of disaster response in the wake of the devastation from Ida.
Delta customers can support the relief efforts by donating through Delta's customer microsite, created in partnership with the Red Cross. Donations will go toward immediate relief needs for those affected by this devastating storm.
The American Red Cross is Delta's longest-standing nonprofit partner, and the partnership has allowed the airline, its customers and employees to help people in need around the world since 1941. Delta is the No. 1 corporate sponsor of blood drives in the country with the Red Cross, and blood is always needed in the wake of a disaster. To find a blood drive near you, visit the American Red Cross blood donation site.
Customers also can donate miles to the American Red Cross through SkyWish, the charitable arm of Delta's SkyMiles frequent flyer program, which allows Delta and its SkyMiles Members to donate miles to charitable organizations worldwide.
Hurricane Ida relief efforts are happening as Delta continues to operate flights in support of the federal government’s activation of a Civil Reserve Air Fleet in response to the situation in Afghanistan. Below is a look at how Delta is helping evacuees, and what customers can do to help.
