United Airlines launches fundraising campaign to support Hurricane Dorian relief efforts.


United Airlines has announced it has launched a Crowdrise fundraising campaign for those affected by Hurricane Dorian, the company said.

Donations will support the airline's relief partners that provide assistance in the United States and internationally: American Red Cross, Airlink, Americares and Global Giving.

United is working directly with these partner organizations, as well as engaging with community leaders to assess disaster impact and provide aid to rebuild affected communities. United will match the first USD 100,000 raised and provide up to a total of 5 million bonus miles to give to individuals who make donations of USD 50 or more.

United will continue to work directly with its partner organizations and engage with community leadership to properly address disaster impact and provide assistance to rebuild affected communities. The online campaign platform is currently scheduled to be available for donations through Sept. 30. As the level of impact on affected communities develops, United continues to evaluate how it can best provide assistance to those in need.

United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,900 flights a day to 356 airports across five continents. In 2018, United and United Express operated more than 1.7 million flights carrying more than 158 million customers.
