Mobil Makes Hurricane Donation
October 13, 1999
Virginia-based Mobil is giving $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help people in Southern Virginia, Northern New Jersey and the Philadelphia area in the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd.
The rains associated with Hurricane Floyd resulted in extensive flooding and many thousands of citizens along the East Coast being displaced for at least some period of time. In some communities, particularly in southern Virginia and North Carolina, thousands of residents still weren't able to return to their homes and businesses weeks after the storm.
Mobil also announced that it will offer special payment arrangements to cardholders in good standing of active Mobil Credit Cards if they live in counties which were officially declared disaster areas in Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia.
