NS Foundation to donate $100,000 to hurricane recovery
Norfolk Southern Foundation will donate $100,000 toward Hurricane Florence recovery efforts in North Carolina.
The foundation will direct $50,000 to the American Red Cross and $50,000 to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina relief efforts.
"Many of our Norfolk Southern employees, facilities and customers are located in these affected areas, and Red Cross and food bank recovery efforts are timely and vital," said Norfolk Southern Corp. Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer James Squires in a press release.
As part of the relief effort, the foundation will match NS employee gifts of $50 or more to the American Red Cross or to any Feeding America food bank, company officials said.
NS employs 1,245 railroaders and operates over 1,187 route miles of track in North Carolina.
