Qwest Communications donates to Haiti earthquake relief efforts

Qwest Communications donates to Haiti earthquake relief efforts

February 15, 2010 Qwest Communications (NYSE: Q) donates $500 to Reiser Relief Inc., through its innovative Qwest Foundation volunteer Matching-Time program. When an employee volunteers 40 hours or more to a nonprofit corporation this qualifies them to receive this grant once every six months. In 2009, current and former Qwest employees volunteered more than 1 million hours in the community, the equivalent of more than $20 million of in-kind resources to non-profits. Reiser Relief Inc. will use this grant towards Haiti earthquake relief efforts.
