As announced by Mayor Ron Nirenberg earlier today, the NuStar Energy Foundation and the Greehey Family Foundation are proud to make a combined contribution of $500,000 to the organizations that are providing shelter, food, supplies and other support to those in need. Because of the number of agencies involved in this effort, the organizations split the contribution among three nonprofit organizations that are straining their resources to respond to the Hurricane Harvey crisis, so they are giving $250,000 to the American Red Cross, $150,000 to the Salvation Army and $100,000 to the San Antonio Food Bank.
In addition, NuStar employees are making personal donations to the American Red Cross and to a fund to benefit their fellow employees in the Houston and Texas City area who were impacted by the storm. They are also conducting a drive to collect relief supplies, including nonperishable food, water, baby food, diapers, flashlights and batteries, new clothing, hygiene items and cleaning supplies, that will be donated to the San Antonio Food Bank, which is helping support the Houston area relief efforts.
Visuals: Employees will be assembling care packages for Gulf Coast employees impacted by the storm at NuStar’s headquarters tomorrow morning. Then, tomorrow around 1 p.m., a convoy of vehicles will leave NuStar’s headquarters to head to Texas City/League City to deliver supplies and provide manpower to help employees start the recovery and rebuilding process.
