The Sempra Energy Foundation and company employees are pledging disaster-relief assistance funds, which could exceed $200,000, to help victims of Hurricane Florence in the Eastern United States and Typhoon Mangkhut in Southeast Asia, it was announced Tuesday.
The Sempra Energy Foundation will make immediate contributions of $50,000 to both Save the Children and the International Medical Corps in support of the relief efforts, and also will match contributions made by employees of all Sempra Energy companies, up to a total of $25,000 to each charity.
“With these donations, we are pleased to support recovery efforts for the families who have been displaced by these catastrophic storms,” said Dennis V. Arriola, chairman of the Sempra Energy Foundation.
“The support of the Sempra Energy Foundation and employees of Sempra Energy is critical in providing the resources that our teams need to deliver urgently needed healthcare, as well as related services and supplies, to the families and communities affected by disaster in North Carolina and the Philippines,” said Nancy Aossey, president and CEO of International Medical Corps. “I’d like to express our profound appreciation to everyone who has contributed.”
