Three More Worthy Causes To Benefit From Norfolk Southern's Art Sale

NORFOLK, Va., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The sale by Norfolk Southern (NYSE: NSC) of a work of art at an auction last month will benefit three more charitable causes in addition to the previously announced donation to the Fire Up 611! campaign, the Norfolk Southern Foundation announced.

"Each one of these organizations plays an important role in enriching a community where Norfolk Southern has a major presence," said Norfolk Southern CEO Wick Moorman. "These donations will be transformative for each of them, and we feel fortunate to be able to share the sale's proceeds with them."

A $500,000 donation to ACCESS College Foundation will allow the Norfolk organization to expand programming and provide those "last dollar" scholarships to students in Hampton Roads, many of whom are first generation college students. ACCESS College Foundation provides a path to attend and complete college for students who may not otherwise have the opportunity

Feeding America Southwest Virginia will receive $252,000 to purchase a new roof, allowing the Roanoke, Va., food bank to replace a roof that has far exceeded its useful life. The organization feeds Southwest Virginia's hungry through a network of partners and engages the region in the fight to end hunger.

The Harrison Museum of African American Culture in Roanoke will receive $25,000 that will enable the museum to purchase exhibits and displays. The Harrison Museum of African American Cultures, Inc. (HMAAC) is a cultural and educational institution committed to advocating, showcasing, preserving and celebrating the art and history of African Americans for Roanoke Valley citizens and visitors.

On Nov. 14, Norfolk Southern sold an untitled 1959 Mark Rothko painting through an auction in New York City. The company announced at that time that it would direct $1.5 million of the proceeds to the Virginia Museum of Transportation's campaign to restore the Class J 611 steam locomotive to service.
