 SUNBANK DONATES $400,000 TO UNITED WAY HURRICANE RELIEF FUND
 MIAMI, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- SunBank announced today a donation of $400,000 to the Hurricane Relief Fund set up by the United Way for the victims of Hurricane Andrew in Dade County.
 SunBank/Miami's CEO Robert Coords explained that the monies will go toward the rebuilding of Dade County and helping hurricane victims recover from the lingering effects a disaster such as Andrew leaves behind.
 "Currently funds are being dispatched from the United Way to front- line emergency relief efforts," Coords said. "It is important that steps are taken to provide the continued help that these victims will need, not only now, but months from now -- that's where the United Way services can help."
 This donation is part of a larger fund of $1 million in reserves that the United Way has released for the Dade County victims of Andrew. From that $1 million, $700,000 is going directly into the American Red Cross disaster relief fund to help provide immediate necessities such as food, shelter and clothing.
 Anyone wishing to make a direct cash or check donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund may do so at any SunBank office in the state of Florida or send checks to the fund at P.O. Box 620000, Orlando, Fla. 32897-8403. The donations will be deposited directly into a statewide deposit account for the American Red Cross.
