ADM Donates $100,000 to the Red Cross to Support Tornado Relief

05/11/2011
Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today announced a donation of $100,000 to the American Red Cross to aid those in the southeastern United States impacted by recent tornadoes. ADM will also match all employee contributions of $25 or more to the American Red Cross Spring Storms Relief Fund through June 30, 2011. The contributions are being made through ADM Cares, the company’s social-investment program.

“Violent storms have left a trail of damage throughout the Southeast,” said Jennifer Ballinger, manager, ADM Cares. “Thousands of people need shelter and food, and ADM is providing much-needed help by supporting the American Red Cross relief efforts and matching contributions made by our colleagues.”

ADM has operations in Birmingham, Ala., Atlanta, Ga., Chattanooga and Cleveland, Tenn.—communities among those impacted by the recent tornadoes. The more than 300 ADM employees in these locations are safe, and no ADM facilities sustained damage from the storms.

In 2010, ADM donated $300,000 to the American Red Cross, including $125,000 to local chapters in ADM communities, $100,000 to the International Response Fund and $75,000 to the Disaster Relief Fund to help people in need in ADM communities and all around the world.

“Through our ADM Cares program, we support the American Red Cross because they have the resources to quickly and efficiently respond to natural disasters in a way that provides help and hope to those in need,” said Ballinger.
