ANR FREIGHT EMPLOYEES COLLECT TRUCKLOAD OF RELIEF SUPPLIES TO AID FLOOD VICTIMS

    INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees at ANR Freight System, Inc., rallied together this week to help midwest flood victims' cleanup efforts in some of the most severely flooded areas in Illinois and Missouri.  ANR employees from as far away as Buffalo, N.Y., have donated a truckload of water, food and cleaning supplies.
    Walter Risley, an ANR Freight truck driver, volunteered to drive a company-donated tractor and trailer to flood-stricken areas near St. Louis, Mo., once the trailer has been loaded.  Risley said he expected to make delivery to a relief center by this weekend.
    ANR employees had strong company support for the effort.  Besides use of the company's equipment, ANR Freight's parent company, The Coastal Corporation, donated $5,000 to purchase mops, brooms and pails, as well as canned food and bottled water.
    Larry Jouett, chief operating officer of ANR Freight, said, "I can't tell you how proud I am to work with my fellow employees, who have volunteered to help total strangers get their lives back in order as the flood recedes.  The company fully supports and appreciates such generosity by the employees."
    ANR Freight System has 41 terminals serving 19 states and is a subsidiary of The Coastal Corporation (NYSE: CGP), Houston-based holding company.
