Charlotte Rescue Mission Receives $75,000 from US Airways

US Airways has made a donation of $75,000 to the Charlotte Rescue
Mission (CRM) to help women struggling with homelessness and chemical
addiction. This gift will be used to expand the Dove's Nest center
for women struggling with homelessness and chemical addiction. Dove's
Nest provides food, shelter, clothing and professional counseling for
women and their children.

"This generous gift from US Airways will change the lives of so many
women and children in the coming year," says E.J. Underwood, director
of development at CRM.

"US Airways' support of the Charlotte Rescue Mission is more than just
a charitable donation; it is fulfilling a promise to our employees,
our customers and our communities to invest in nonprofit organizations
that care for the most vulnerable in the cities we serve," said Kelly
Balthazor, US Airways' Director of Community Relations. "We are
honored to begin a partnership with the Mission and help them to
provide safe shelter and long-term recovery programs that will
ultimately change their lives of their residents."

Charlotte Rescue Mission provides a 100 to 120-day residential
recovery program for men and women who are addicted to drugs and/or
alcohol. Because all of CRM's clients are homeless or at-risk of
becoming homeless, services are provided at no cost. The life and job
skills training clients receive at CRM helps them transition back into
the community as contributing, successful members.
