“With this donation, we hope to strengthen the Red Cross’ existing network of resources and their ability to provide aid to those most impacted after the recent flooding in the Houston and Beaumont areas,” said Greg Garland, chairman and CEO of Phillips 66.
“Phillips 66 is constantly stepping up to the plate to help the community time and time again. We could count on them during Hurricane Harvey, during the California wildfires and countless times in-between. Their display of social responsibility is second to none, and I am thankful that Phillips 66 is dedicated to serving those in need,” said Henry Van de Putte, regional chief executive officer for the Texas Gulf Coast of the American Red Cross.
Recovering from a disaster of this magnitude takes time and a diverse network of organizations and services to make sure people have the help they need. The destruction of homes spans multiple counties, requiring thousands of people along the Texas gulf coast to be forced from their homes. Phillips 66’s donation will help provide much needed sheltering, hot meal, medical and mental health services.
The Red Cross depends on financial donations like these to fund its relief services. Help people affected by this disaster by visiting redcross.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
