WESTFIELD – Phillips 66 has donated $500,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with hurricane relief efforts following Superstorm Sandy.
“The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for Phillips 66’s generosity to support our work helping those impacted by Superstorm Sandy,” said Suzanne Lutz of the American Red Cross. “Sandy’s devastation damaged and destroyed homes and uprooted a number of New Jersey families from their homes and neighborhoods, and the American Red Cross will be there for many on what will be a long road to recovery.”
David Erfert, Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery Manager notes, “Assisting our neighbors in the community is consistent with our values of safety, honor, and commitment. On behalf of Phillips 66, I am proud to present this donation to the American Red Cross.”
Superstorm Sandy resulted in Red Cross relief operations in more than nine states in 2012. In New Jersey alone, more than 3,000 Red Cross workers provided more than 4 million meals and snacks, distributed more than 1.6 million relief items, supported more than 34,000 shelter stays, and made more than 28,000 health and mental health visits to New Jersey residents affected by Sandy during the relief operation.
