AKRON (Sept. 17)—Goodyear is donating $1 million to aid the Red Cross and rescue workers involved in search, rescue and cleanup efforts at the terrorist attack sites in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. The company said it expects personal donations from its 100,000 employees worldwide to enhance the corporate donation significantly. "Our deepest sympathy rests with those who lost loved ones in the devastating events of last week," said Samir Gibara, Goodyear chairman and CEO. "Goodyear's gift allows the company and its associates to offer our support to the men and women who put their lives on the line to save others." Goodyear also said it is making available manufacturing, logistics and delivery personnel to assure continuous tire availability in both New York and Washington. "We understand the daunting task that lies ahead, and our company, along with our retail and commercial operations, will continue to provide whatever assistance is possible," Gibara said. Goodyear also said it would offer its fleet of three U.S.-based airships to display aerial night signs to assist in relief and philanthropic efforts as long as required.
