Transocean LTD (NYSE:RIG) reported its decision to contribute to the Houston Food Bank and to the American Red Cross for immediate relief programs that are ongoing to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In addition, the firm will match donations done to the relief programs by its staff, many of whom are already supporting the people in need. The company is proud of the volunteering efforts of its staffs during this challenging time.
Jeremy Thigpen, the CEO and President of Transocean, reported that their prayers and thoughts are with all the people residing in Houston and the neighboring communities who have been adversely impacted by this catastrophic hurricane. While their company is a Swiss-based firm, they have always had a notable presence in the greater Houston region, where they have enjoyed a strong and long-standing relationship with the neighboring community.
They expect that these donations will assist to deliver the assistance and support that is so desperately required by so many people as they jointly work to rebuild this city. The American Red Cross is key to supporting the requirements of the community during disaster. Also, the Red Cross puts committed efforts in Texas to offer much required support and shelter for individuals impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Not to forget, the Houston Food Bank exhibits a remarkable history of offering daily support to numerous communities and also during times of disaster. Brian Greene, the CEO and President of the Houston Food Bank, expressed that in these challenging period for Houston and its businesses and residents, they are touched by the continuous support from generous donors and supporters.
They are thankful to Transocean and team for their ongoing support, and now this large contribution for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief programs. With these funds, they will be able to offer much-needed water, cleaning supplies and food throughout Greater Houston and all eighteen counties in their service area.
