“We are deeply concerned about the people who are suffering from the devastation caused by the floods that have occurred in North Dakota,” said John Hess, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Hess Corporation. “To support relief efforts, we are donating $1 million to the following organizations: $750,000 to the Minot Area Community Foundation and $250,000 to the North Dakota Community Foundation. These groups will coordinate their activities to provide services to flood victims and assist in long term recovery and rebuilding efforts in the Minot area and across the state.”I assume others will step up to the plate also.
In addition, Hess has offered a matching gift program for employees who wish to make a personal contribution to these relief organizations as well as the American Red Cross North Dakota Flood Relief.
