The funds will be used by American Red Cross disaster workers to provide food, shelter, emotional assistance and basic supplies to individuals and families affected by recent storms and tornadoes.
“I have enormous gratitude for Red Cross volunteers and AT&T network employees who were among some of the first on the ground to help survivors connect to vital services, family and loved ones. We will continue to partner with the Red Cross, local authorities and emergency responders to provide help, assistance and resources as we work to rebuild,” said AT&T Arkansas President Ed Drilling.
