A series of natural disasters across North America over the past month could have tested the limits of corporate generosity. But major companies have continued to give.

Companies have already donated $224.9 million in the aftermath of Harvey and Irma, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said.

So far, firms have offered up an additional $13 million to help with Mexico and Maria, according to the chamber's list. That number does not include the latest round of donations from Coca-Cola (KO).

Other companies are providing help in the form of services.

AT&T (T)and T-Mobile (TMUS) are waiving cell phone charges in affected areas. JetBlue (JBLU) is flying in emergency supplies on one of its airplanes.
