Ameren Matches Employee Gifts for Earthquake, Tsunami Relief Efforts
Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE) announced today the company is creating a matching gift program for employee contributions to help victims of the Dec. 26 earthquake and tsunami. The company will match one-for-one contributions made by Ameren employees from Dec. 26, 2004, to Jan. 31, 2005, to the American Red Cross, CARE and UNICEF.

"Our employees have encouraged the company to create this program. Many of them are active volunteers and contributors to a range of organizations and have long experience responding to emergencies," says Richard J. Mark, senior vice president, Energy Delivery. "Some of our employees have family members who live in the affected regions, making our response even more relevant. As a Fortune 500 company and a leading utility in the nation, it is critical that we do our part to respond to this unparalleled tragedy."

With assets of more than $18 billion, Ameren through its subsidiaries, serves 2.3 million electric and more than 900,000 natural gas customers in a 64,000- square-mile area of Illinois and Missouri.
