How to Help

Thursday, September 20, 2001

Each day, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette will list companies, organizations and individuals who are contributing to the relief effort following the recent terrorist attacks.

• A partnership of PNC Financial Services Group, Mine Safety Appliances Co. and investment firm BlackRock Inc. is supplying respirators and hard hats to recovery workers at the World Trade Center site in New York. Mine Safety, a leading manufacturer of environmental safety equipment, is supplying hundreds of half-mask respirators because of the poor air quality at the site, and the companies are supplying 5,000 hard hats with an American flag and the message "United We Stand" emblazoned on them.

PNC also is matching contributions by its employees to the United Way September 11th Fund, while Mine Safety is doing the same for contributions to its company's charitable foundation. BlackRock, which manages $220.5 billion in assets, is matching contributions by employees to the American Red Cross, New York Firefighters' Memorial Fund, the Policemen's Benevolent Association Widows' and Children's Fund and other organizations supporting relief efforts.

• As part of an effort by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF THEATRE OWNERS, Carmike Cinemas Inc. and Showcase Cinemas plan to donate all movie ticket and concession sale proceeds at their theaters Tuesday to the American Red Cross and United Way September 11th Fund relief efforts.
