Day. For every $1,000 raised through the campaign, an entire family will get the food, clothing, shelter and medication they need to replace everything they've lost in a house fire. In Chicago alone, the American Red Cross responds to 3 to 5 fires every single day. Contributions will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the company. 

"The American Red Cross is proud to partner with Astellas to help change lives and build more resilient communities," said Fran Edwardson, Chief Executive Officer, American Red Cross of Greater Chicago. "Whether it's supplying much needed blood for patients in the region or comforting a family by providing a safe place to stay and a warm meal after their home was destroyed by a fire, together, with the support of the corporate community and employees who care, we can alleviate suffering and give people hope when they need it the most."    

Astellas is committed to being a company that is known for its corporate citizenship. Volunteerism is entrenched in the Astellas culture and the company has created the StarGIVING program to help employees increase the impact of their own charitable giving. In fact, each full-time Astellas Pharma US employee is given up to five days paid time off to provide volunteer support to charitable organizations. Astellas also matches, dollar for dollar, annual employee contributions made to the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity and Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest.
