Phillips 66 contributes $3 million more to Hurricane Relief


Phillips 66 announced it will contribute an additional $3 million to assist Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in southeast Texas. The donation will be shared equally by the Rebuild Texas Fund, United Way of Greater Houston and the American Red Cross and will bring Phillips 66’s total contributions to $4 million since the storm.

The donation will support relief efforts throughout southeast Texas, including the greater Houston metropolitan area, Brazoria County and Beaumont.

United Way recently launched a local Relief Fund to help meet storm-related needs in the Greater Houston area, with 100 percent of gifts dedicated to helping our neighbors recover from the storm.

Irma weakened to a Category 1 storm as the massive hurricane zeroed in on the Tampa Bay region early this morning after hammering much of Florida with roof-ripping winds, gushing floodwaters and widespread power outages.

The hurricane’s maximum sustained winds weakened to 85 mph with additional weakening expected.

Irma continues its slog north along Florida’s western coast having blazed a path of unknown destruction. With communication cut to some of the Florida Keys, where Irma made landfall yesterday, and rough conditions persisting across the peninsula.
