In the aftermath of the terrible wildfires in California – fuels and petrochemical companies are among those joining in to help the victims of those fires.
Chevron has made a contribution of $1 million to the American Red Cross, to help with the recovery efforts in both Northern and Southern California – Phillips 66 has contributed $250,000 to the Red Cross, Marathon Petroleum has given $275,000 to a range of organizations and BP has sent $50,000 to the Red Cross.
“Our thoughts are with all our neighbors who have been affected by the fires, and we honor all those working to contain them,” said Chevron Chairman and CEO Michael Wirth.
America’s fuels and petrochemical companies operate in California, and every state of the Union – so they’ve got neighbors everywhere. And, in California and every other state, they’ve got a long tradition of pitching in to help neighbors in need.
