Thank You, BP America!

November 12, 2008
We all want to thank BP America for its very generous donation of $50,000 to the Livingston Parish Public Schools. The gift was a total and welcomed surprise to all.

BP America donated the funds in an effort to help with the costs of damages from Hurricane Gusta and Hurricane Ike. The two hurricanes were a double whammy greatly impacting many areas through out Louisiana and Texas .

The gift of money is greatly appreciated, especially after all of the support our communities received from BP America at the time of the storm. BP America worked in various communities for weeks following the hurricanes. They distributed bottled water, nonperishable foods, cleaning supplies and funds at that time.

The gift to the Livingston Parish Public Schools was part of BP America’s Foundation total donation of $8 million dollars to various communities in Louisiana and Texas  for disaster relief. BP America also donated to organizations such as: The United Way, The American Red Cross, and The Salvation Army. Funds were also earmarked for schools, community relief centers, and volunteer fire departments.

To help raise funds, BP America challenged its employees to donate and promised to match their donations up to $1 million dollars.

I would like to express my personal thanks to one and all, in the BP America organization for their efforts.
