Hawaiian Airlines pilots and their union have donated more than $14,000 to victims of Japan’s earthquake and tsunamis.
The Air Line Pilots Association said Monday Hawaiian Airlines pilots donated $9,500 and the union contributed an additional $5,000.
A check was presented to the Hawaii chapter of the Red Cross.
Hawaiian Airlines Capt. Rick Baldwin, who organized the fundraising effort in two weeks, says many at the airline have ties to Japan.
The pilots have previously donated $15,000 in 2009 for typhoon victims in the Philippines and Indonesia.
