The tech community really seemed to come together to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. Wireless carriers cut fees, teamed up together and even allowed free phone calls. Now, Apple said that it is helping Sandy victims with a $2.5 million donation to the Red Cross.

“For the past week, our thoughts have been with those affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath,” Tim Cook said in a letter obtained by 9to5Mac. “And Apple employees and customers the world over have raised millions of dollars toward the relief so far. But we can always do more. That’s why, on behalf of all our employees, Apple is making a donation of $2.5 million to the American Red Cross to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief. We hope this contribution will help families, businesses, and communities recover and rebuilt.”

Nicely done, Apple.
