SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Chevron Corp. recently donated $450,000 to the Pan American Development Foundation's (PADF) Haiti disaster relief and recovery effort.
"Chevron is a shining example of corporate leadership during natural disasters and humanitarian crises," John Sanbrailo, PADF's executive director, said in a statement. "Chevron's generous contribution to our work in Haiti ensures that we can benefit even more people in some of the mostly heavily damaged areas."
PADF, an independent nonprofit agency that acts as the natural disaster arm of Organization of American States (OAS), is collaborating with Hollywood Unites for Haiti (HUFH) and other organizations to provide immediate relief to the nation.
"PADF has always taken a long-term approach to helping Haiti. We were there for them before and we are proud to be able to respond to the call for support again in providing immediate relief and assistance," said Mauricio Nicholls, general manager, retail and commercial and industrial, Caribbean, Central America and Andean regions for Chevron Products Co.
In addition, Chevron is matching its U.S. employee contributions to the agencies and encouraging its employees around the globe to contribute. Employees can donate online at www.PanAmericanRelief.org.
Chevron's recent contribution to PADF is part of a $1.2 million donation to several aid organizations working in Haiti. Moreover, Chevron has been involved in PADF's relief efforts in Guatemala, El Salvador, Jamaica, Ecuador, Peru and elsewhere. It is a founding member of PADF's Disaster Management and Emergency Response Program.
