We want the people of the Gulf Coast to know that the people of GE are with you
Jeff Immelt, GE CEO and Chairman

The General Electric Company today announced that it is donating an additional $5 million in cash and $10 million in equipment and services to Hurricane Katrina disaster relief.

"We want the people of the Gulf Coast to know that the people of GE are with you," said GE CEO and Chairman Jeff Immelt. "We are dedicating every resource available to us to help alleviate the incredible human suffering and begin the recovery process. As needs emerge, we stand ready to do more."

GE will provide:

-- An additional $5 million to the American Red Cross. Earlier this week, GE donated $1 million to the Red Cross. In addition, GE employees have donated $1 million, which the GE Fund will match. That brings the total cash donations from GE and its employees to the Red Cross to $8 million.

-- At least $10 million in medical devices, power generation equipment, water purification and other goods and services as identified by federal relief authorities.

"GE is proud to join with other great companies like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, P&G and others to do our part to get the Gulf Coast back on its feet," Immelt said.

Immelt has appointed a GE vice president, Dick Pease, to coordinate the company's response to the hurricane. Pease will work with GE customers, the government and others to address immediate needs for portable power generation, medical diagnostic equipment and other goods and services.

"We also want our employees in the region who have lost their homes or suffered other losses to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers and that we will be with them to help in their recovery," Immelt said.
