Chevron Corporation today announced a contribution of $250,000 from the Chevron Global Community Fund to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts for wildfires in California.
“Our thoughts are with those impacted by the overwhelming effects of this situation and the people on the front lines battling to contain and extinguish the fires,” said Dale Walsh, vice president of corporate affairs for Chevron. “This donation reflects our ongoing commitment to help people in the communities where we do business during challenging times.”
Chevron has operated in California for more than 140 years. The company will also match any qualifying donations to wildfire relief efforts made by employees and retirees. The company has also previously committed $2 million to the California Fire Foundation (CFF) for a four-year program to support CFF’s direct victim assistance program, Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE).
