Thursday, August 06, 2020
August 5, 2020 Chevron donated personal protective equipment (PPE) worth approximately $19,000 for healthcare workers and others on the front line to help Permian Basin communities
The donations were distributed to hospitals, school districts and clinics in Eddy and Lea counties in New Mexico, and Culberson, Pecos, Reeves and Ward counties in Texas. The donation includes procedural masks and medical gloves purchased through MAP International, an organization that provides medical supplies and medications to nonprofit organizations around the world.
“We are thrilled that we have been able to provide PPE to frontline workers across the basin who are battling this pandemic,” said Nathan Carroll, operations superintendent, Delaware Basin for the company’s Mid-Continent Business Unit (MCBU). “PPE continues to be a need, and we are grateful to have a partner like MAP that has access to resources and a supply chain.”
Steve Stirling, president and CEO of MAP International, said, “MAP is honored to be in partnership with Chevron to get personal protective equipment to clinics in New Mexico and Texas. Through our combined effort, I am encouraged we will help limit the spread COVID-19 in these areas and serve people in need.”
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, MCBU has made several donations in response to the pandemic. In addition to PPE, the company provided Chevron gas cards to organizations providing emergency services and direct financial support to non-profits providing relief in their communities. Chevron has been involved with efforts across the globe and has contributed thousands of PPE for first responders and health organizations in communities near Chevron’s U.S. facilities.
