M2 EQUITYBITES-January 29, 2019-United Airlines supports federal workers with donates USD 1m to Feeding America's Shutdown Response Fund


United Airlines has announced that it is donating USD 1 million to Feeding America's Shutdown Response Fund, in response to an increased need for support as a result of the government shutdown, the company said.

This donation will directly support the food banks that are providing food for families of federal workers, who need assistance following their loss of income.

The donation builds on United's ongoing efforts to support the federal workers who work side-by-side with the United team every day to get customers where they need to go safely and on time. This includes working with Feeding America member food banks to set up and provide food distribution centers at United's seven hub airports and New York's LaGuardia Airport.

United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,800 flights a day to 353 airports across five continents. In 2018, United and United Express operated more than 1.7 million flights carrying more than 158 million customers.

Feeding America is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States. Through a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs, the organization provide meals to more than 46 million people each year.
