Phillips 66 donates $1 million to Red Cross for Hurricane Ida relief efforts

September 8, 2021 By    

Phillips 66 will contribute a total of $1 million to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in the states affected by Hurricane Ida and its remnants.

“We want those affected by Ida to know they are not alone,” says Greg Garland, chairman and CEO of Phillips 66. “The Red Cross is at the fore as the American people and industry marshal resources to help people recover and rebuild, and we are proud at Phillips 66 to support those efforts.”

The storm made landfall on Aug. 29, as a Category 4 hurricane, knocking out power across Louisiana and bringing floodwaters before continuing north across the country.

Headquartered in Houston, Phillips 66 operates assets in both Louisiana and New Jersey, and has confirmed that all of its employees in the affected areas are accounted for and safe. The company has a total of 14,000 employees.

“The American Red Cross, our volunteers and partners are working around the clock to provide help and hope to thousands of people impacted by Hurricane Ida,” says Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross.

In 2017, Phillips 66 donated funds to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, and then in 2020, the company contributed to those who were impacted by COVID-19.
