Since 2013, United and United customers have contributed more than $4 million to disaster relief efforts.

“The thoughts of our entire United family are with the families and individuals affected by this devastating storm,” said Brett Hart, United’s executive vice president and general counsel. “Our customers and employees have shown their generosity and eagerness to help time and time again in disasters such as Hurricane Matthew. It is our hope that partnering with these organizations will help provide relief to those who need it most.”

MileagePlus customers who give to the American Red Cross, Americares, Airlink and OperationUSA can receive up to 1,000 bonus miles by entering their MileagePlus number at the time of their donation.



United will award members miles based on the size of their donation:

• Donate $50-$99 – Earn 250 bonus miles

• Donate $250 or more – Earn 1,000 bonus miles

Miles will be awarded to customers on a first-come, first-served basis based on contributions made through the airline’s fundraising page through Oct. 21, 2016.
