Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced Thursday that Chevron has donated $25,000 to the Lafourche Parish Sheriffs Office representing their support of Lafourche Parish in the recovery efforts from Hurricane Isaac in 2012. Sheriff Webre thanked Chevron officials for the donation in person on Thursday, March 28 at the offices of Chevrons Gulf of Mexico Business Unit in Covington, Louisiana. Chevron officials indicated the funds are to assist with the purchase of generators and tactical gear to be utilized during future emergencies and disasters.
”On behalf of the men and women of the Lafourche Parish Sheriffs Office, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to Chevron for its generous donation to our agency,” said Sheriff Webre. “This comes at a critical time when we are developing our brand new Law Enforcement Complex in Thibodaux. This money will, in fact, help fund a generator and other critical equipment as we relocate our Communications Section to the new facility. We are sincerely humbled by Chevrons generosity and contribution to our community.”
Sakari Morrison, Policy, Government and Public Affairs Manager for Chevron North Americas Gulf of Mexico Business Unit, initially informed the Sheriff of the donation in January.
“Chevrons vision is to be the global energy company most admired for its people, partnership and performance,” said Morrison. One of the ways we achieve this vision is by supporting high-value and high-impact programs that improve the social well-being, environment, and/or the economic vitality of the communities in which we work. We are very fortunate to partner with the Lafourche Parish Sheriffs Office and hope the equipment will further enable first responders to deliver immediate assistance during emergency situations.”
