LNG Industry,


The Sempra Energy Foundation, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and employees of the Sempra Energy companies have announced that they are joining forces to donate up to US$350 000 towards relief efforts for communities affected by the recent California wildfires.

The foundation claims that it will donate US$75 000 to the American Red Cross and an additional US$75 000 to the United Way of Venture County, designated to the wildfire disaster relief fund. SoCalGas, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, will donate over US$100 000 to various community organisations helping victims and evacuees of the Woolsey fire. In addition to this, the Sempra Energy Foundation claims that it has also agreed to match Sempra Energy employees’ donations up to US$50 000 to the American Red Cross and United Way of Ventura County, potentially adding an additional US$100 000 to the total amount.

Dennis V. Arriola, Chairman of the Sempra Energy Foundation, said: “The impact of the current wildfires has been devastating for thousands of Californians.

“It is our hope that these donations may provide some relief and support in helping those impacted begin to rebuild their lives and communities.”

Both the American Red Cross and United Way of Ventura County are providing relief to the victims of the fires. The United Way of Ventura County will also provide support for victims who have long-term recovery needs.

“The continued support from the Sempra Energy Foundation, SoCalGas and Sempra Energy employees will go a long way to provide assistance to impacted households in Ventura County. We're so thankful for their on going generosity.”
