Join Us In Supporting Continued Relief Efforts

More than a month after Hurricane Sandy made landfall, the New York State Emergency Operations Center is still in a 'Full Activation' mode, and in New Jersey, their state Emergency Operations Center is activated at 'Enhanced Operations'. The American Red Cross is still in the emergency mode of their response to Sandy, and expects to continue this for weeks. They are actively working with communities to determine how the Red Cross can help meet their needs now and in the future. This will continue through the recovery process.

The response to Sandy is very large and costly and the American Red Cross needs your help now. Please join us in supporting those affected by this disaster by making a cash donation to the Red Cross and American Airlines will reward your generosity with an AAdvantage® bonus mile offer. Through December 31, 2012, AAdvantage members can earn a one-time award of 250 bonus miles for a minimum $50 donation, or 500 bonus miles for a donation of $100 or more to the American Red Cross.


To earn your bonus miles, access the American Airlines / American Red Cross donation site, and select the box below the sentence stating, "I consent to the American Red Cross sharing my contact information and donation amount with American Airlines for the purposes of matching my donation or informing me of additional promotions offered as part of this campaign," and complete the form.

Relief Update

Thanks to the generous support of the public, the Red Cross has been able to provide food, shelter, relief supplies and comfort to thousands of people. Approximately 2,400 Red Cross workers are still on the ground, continuing to support shelters, provide food and water at fixed sites, and drive through neighborhoods to distribute meals and supplies.

  • In New York, hundreds of people are still unable to return home, or have returned home to neighborhoods where massive clean-up efforts are underway.
  • In New Jersey, Red Cross service delivery locations are open in Atlantic City and Toms River, where local residents can meet with caseworkers to begin their recovery planning. More so, Red Cross feeding efforts in the state are taking a more targeted approach as the disaster needs change in the community. Efforts are being focused on areas that still have an urgent or unmet need for meals.
  • To date, more than 15,200 Red Cross workers have been deployed from all 50 states. About 90% of these workers are volunteers.
  • Nearly 8 million meals and snacks have been served.
  • The Red Cross has distributed more than 6.1 million relief items such as hygiene kits, clean-up kits, clothing, work gloves and mops.
