The donation was made after the American Red Cross assisted with a train derailment and fire in Hays July 16.
During the train derailment, the Red Cross opened a shelter for residents temporarily displaced from their homes.
“The Red Cross is able to do what we do thanks to the generosity of community partners like Union Pacific,” said Meagan Carver, American Red Cross Disaster Specialist, in a news release.
“Their generous donation helps us continue in our mission of alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies.”
The Red Cross also provided services to the emergency responders on the scene in south Hays.
