HOUSTON – (Aug. 29, 2017) – Motiva has pledged $500,000 to support disaster recovery efforts in Houston and Port Arthur after Tropical Storm Harvey’s devastating impact over the past several days. In addition, the company will match employee contributions as part of the company’s internal-giving programs.
Funds will be distributed to Houston Mayor Turner’s Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund, American Red Cross and other organizations to assist with disaster recovery efforts in both the Houston and Port Arthur, Texas communities.
“While Tropical Storm Harvey has caused unprecedented destruction to our community, it has also illustrated the Texas spirit,” said Dan Romasko, Motiva’s president and chief executive officer. “We are proud to be headquartered in such a remarkable state and are honored to join with our fellow Texans to support the rebuilding efforts on our journey of recovery.”
Working in coordination with agencies in charge of cleanup activities and with the safety of employees in mind, Motiva will be assessing opportunities and supporting employee volunteer efforts to aid in local recovery efforts after the storm subsides.
