Salvation Army Sandy aid

In support of Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts and in response to the storm that hit the U.S. Northeast this week, BP has donated a large stockpile of humanitarian assistance supplies from past hurricane recovery efforts along the Gulf Coast to the Salvation Army of New York and New Jersey.

Thirteen 18-wheeler trucks containing $800,000 worth of supplies left Hammond, Louisiana Wednesday and are scheduled to arrive at a Salvation Army warehouse in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area on Friday. The 300 pallets of supplies contain nearly 150 generators, non-perishable food, water, flashlights, hygiene and sanitation products, first aid kits, gas cans and other useful materials.

This assistance follows last week's donation of $500,000 from the BP Foundation to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The $500,000 donation is in addition to donations made by the BP Foundation Employee Matching Program and will assist Red Cross efforts to provide meals, shelter, clothing, water and medical care.

Earlier in the year, the BP Foundation donated $135,000 for wildfire and tornado relief efforts in communities in Colorado and Oklahoma.

In August, BP America, Inc. also donated $1 million to support disaster relief efforts in Louisiana and Mississippi following Hurricane Isaac. That donation was made to the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army and divided equally between the two hardest-hit states.
