Sprint Matches Funds for Katrina

Sprint Nextel is committed to serving our communities in every way that we can. In support of that commitment, the Sprint Foundation has approved matching gifts to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund in support of those affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Sprint Nextel will donate $250,000 to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund and will also match contributions made by regular full-time Legacy Sprint and Legacy Nextel employees up to $100,000.

Here’s how you can contribute to the relief effort:

· Gifts from eligible donors must be made to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund between Aug. 31, 2005, and Sept. 14, 2005.

· The minimum gift eligible for matching funds is $25.

· Only individual employee gifts made by eligible donors to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund are eligible for the matching gift. Group gifts will not be matched.

· The Red Cross is discouraging local collection drives for food, clothing, water, etc., as it is hard to deliver these items to the hurricane zone. Instead, the Red Cross encourages those who are interested in helping to make a financial donation.

Fill out the matching gift form and send it in to make sure your gift goes twice as far for those whose lives have been affected by Hurricane Katrina.

If you have questions regarding donations or other hurricane relief, please send an e-mail to the Sprint Nextel Hurricane Response mailbox.
