AZ supports American Red Cross Disaster Relief

AstraZeneca recently made a $125,000 donation to the American Red Cross “Disaster Responder Program” in support of disaster relief and recovery efforts for 2012.

The support provided by AstraZeneca will help the Red Cross ensure an immediate response to meet the needs of those affected by disasters.  AstraZeneca provides funding upfront to the Red Cross, the country’s congressionally recognized organization for disaster relief and recovery efforts.

AstraZeneca has already provided  a similar upfront donation to our Home state chapter in Delaware, bringing the total contribution to the Red Cross this year to $250,000.

In addition, AstraZeneca employees can continue to make personal donations to the Red Cross and the company will continue to provide much needed product donations to affected areas.
