Phillips 66 announced it will contribute $1 million to the American Red Cross to assist relief efforts arising from Hurricane Harvey and the resultant flooding in southeast Texas.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the disaster, including our many employees, friends and neighbors across southeast Texas,” said Greg Garland, chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. “The solidarity of our community is remarkable, and I am confident that this unity and spirit to overcome will drive our efforts to rebuild. It is our sincere hope that this contribution from Phillips 66 will help those efforts and those most in need.”
The donation will support relief efforts throughout southeast Texas, including the greater Houston metropolitan area and Brazoria County. In addition, the company has an employee matching program, which will match employee contributions for disaster relief up to $15,000, and a volunteer grants program which will provide financial donations for volunteer hours provided by Phillips 66 employees.
Phillips 66 has been a long-time partner of the American Red Cross. Through this partnership, the company promotes its ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and emergency preparedness of its employees and the communities in which it operates.
