BP Donates $1M to Aid Victims of Hurricane Isaac
BP America, Inc. announced today it will donate $1 million to support disaster relief efforts in Louisiana and Mississippi following Hurricane Isaac.
The donation will be made to the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army and divided equally between the two hardest-hit states.
“This assistance cannot fix all that has been broken by this natural disaster, but we hope it can help some of those in need today and contribute to a sustained recovery effort in the months ahead,” said Crystal E. Ashby, Executive Vice President of Government and Public Affairs for BP America.
The storm forced BP to evacuate workers from offshore platforms and drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as from onshore facilities in south Louisiana and Mississippi, where hundreds of BP employees live.
Separate from this donation, BP is also providing assistance to our employees and their families in the region.
