Maersk Line, Fundraiser for USS

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

In an effort help generate support for the United Seamen’s Service (USS), Maersk Line, Limited (MLL) has established a company-wide fundraising drive in which the company will provide a dollar-for-dollar match for all donations made by MLL employees to USS from February through October 2009.  MLL will then present a check for the matching amount in November to the USS at the annual Admiral of the Ocean (AOTOS) dinner in New York City. 

United Seamen’s Service is a non-profit organization that provides services for American merchant mariners and international seafarers. Since 1942, USS has operated centers around the world where mariners have access to services such as counseling, food, recreation, communication and health articles.

Maersk Line, Limited is an American company, based in Norfolk, Va., that provides U.S. flag transportation, ship management and technical services to government and commercial customers.
