FIRST UNION NATIONAL BANK FUND HELPS HURRICANE VICTIMS

 FIRST UNION NATIONAL BANK FUND HELPS HURRICANE VICTIMS
 JACKSONVILLE, FLa., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- First Union National Bank of Florida is providing matching funds for hurricane relief efforts in South Florida and has established a fund for First Union employees who have suffered losses and hardship in the wake of Hurricane Andrew.
 In a cooperative effort with the Governor's office, First Union has made a $500,000 matching-fund commitment for the First Union-Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to meet a critical need for cash donations. In addition, First Union has established an internal fund for hurricane relief that will enable employees and friends of the company to make direct contributions to First Union employees in South Florida.
 "Our employee fund will speed relief within our company. Our partnership with the American Red Cross will speed relief to our community," said Byron E. Hodnett, chairman and chief executive officer of First Union National Bank of Florida. "Together, these two funds will bring help and hope as families in Dade County rebuild."
 Contributions to either fund may be made at any First Union National Bank of Florida office or may be mailed to:
 First Union National Bank of Florida
 P.O. Box 2565
 Jacksonville, FL 32203
 Checks should be made payable to the "First Union-Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund," or to the "First Union Employees Andrew Relief Fund." In South Florida, contributions to either fund may also be made at any of the former Southeast Bank offices, which became part of First Union last year.
 First Union National Bank of Florida, with headquarters in Jacksonville, has assets of $27.2 billion and operates 551 offices statewide.
