Chevron Donates to Haiti Relief

SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Chevron Corp. recently donated $450,000 to the Pan American Development Foundation's (PADF) Haiti disaster relief and recovery effort.

"Chevron is a shining example of corporate leadership during natural disasters and humanitarian crises," John Sanbrailo, PADF's executive director, said in a statement. "Chevron's generous contribution to our work in Haiti ensures that we can benefit even more people in some of the mostly heavily damaged areas."

PADF, an independent nonprofit agency that acts as the natural disaster arm of Organization of American States (OAS), is collaborating with Hollywood Unites for Haiti (HUFH) and other organizations to provide immediate relief to the nation.

"PADF has always taken a long-term approach to helping Haiti. We were there for them before and we are proud to be able to respond to the call for support again in providing immediate relief and assistance," said Mauricio Nicholls, general manager, retail and commercial and industrial, Caribbean, Central America and Andean regions for Chevron Products Co.

In addition, Chevron is matching its U.S. employee contributions to the agencies and encouraging its employees around the globe to contribute. Employees can donate online at
