AMERICAN RED CROSS MAKES URGENT CALL FOR DONATIONS AND OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
August 31, 2017 (8:00 AM MDT)
All of us who work in the energy business have friends, family, clients, and colleagues in the Houston area. The images coming back from the area show devastating flooding and wind damage.
We at PetroDE offer our thoughts and prayers to those in the path of the storm, but they also have practical needs. The American Red Cross has issued an urgent call for donation to help those displaced and impacted by the hurricane. We encourage you to consider making a donation, whatever you can, to the American Red Cross.
