Norfolk Southern: ‘We Will be Judged by Our Actions’

Norfolk Southern Corp. said it is creating a $1 million charitable fund to be available immediately as one component of its planned support for the community of East Palestine, Ohio.

According to a news release, the company will work with state and local leaders to identify where the donations can do the most good.

“We are committed to East Palestine today and in the future,” said Norfolk Southern President and CEO Alan Shaw. “We will be judged by our actions. We are cleaning up the site in an environmentally responsible way, reimbursing residents affected by the derailment, and working with members of the community to identify what is needed to help East Palestine recover and thrive.”

Shaw continued, “This fund allows Norfolk Southern to move quickly to meet their immediate needs. We anticipate making further charitable contributions in East Palestine as conversations continue with local leaders and members of the community.”
