Southwest Airlines donated thousands of snacks today that were immediately loaded on trucks to be handed out at shelters and in communities impacted by the tornadoes in Texas.
"We're a proud supporter of the Red Cross and the work that they do, and we're happy to help out," said Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Marylee McInnis. "We think that this is very important that we give back to our community."
We work with our partners and supporters - before, during and after a disaster - to keep snacks, beverages, blankets, cleaning supplies, tarps and other essential items stocked, positioned in warehouses around the nation, ready to go at a moments notice.
When you make a donation to the Red Cross, you're not only supporting our mission of helping families, but you're also giving us the opportunity to prepare for the next tornado, fire or flood.
If you would like to become a supporter of the Red Cross, please call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit www.redcrossdallas.org today.
