Chevron contributes $1M for Hurricane Irma relief

Chevron USA Inc. will contribute $1 million from Chevron and the Chevron Global Community Fund to assist with efforts to recover from the damage done by Hurricane Irma.

"Chevron makes every effort to support the communities where we operate, particularly in times of need," said Dale Walsh, president of Chevron Americas Products. "Our hearts go out to all those affected by this storm."

The commitment includes a $600,000 donation to the American Red Cross from the Chevron Global Community Fund to support immediate relief efforts throughout the impacted regions. Another $400,000 is from Chevron's Fuel Your School program, which would normally be made available based on fuel sales, going to DonorsChoose.org for local public school classroom projects in south Florida.

In addition, the company will match any donations made to the relief efforts by its employees and retirees.

These commitments follow Chevron's $1 million donation to the American Red Cross for response to Hurricane Harvey, along with another $1 million for DonorsChoose.org.
