BP Donates $500,000 to Red Cross for Oklahoma Tornado Recovery

In response to the tornado that hit Moore Oklahoma this week, BP is donating $500,000 and emergency supplies to the Oklahoma Red Cross to support humanitarian assistance and recovery efforts. BP America Inc. will donate $300,000 and the BP Foundation will donate an additional $200,000. The $500,000 will assist local Red Cross efforts to provide emergency meals, shelter, clothing, water and medical care in the affected areas. The $500,000 donation is in addition to donations made by the BP Foundation Employee Matching Program. BP employees in eastern Oklahoma also today delivered a trailer of non-perishable relief items to a collection center near Moore for use by the Red Cross. BP employs about 600 staff and contractors engaged in natural gas and pipeline operations in Oklahoma.
