As we all know natural disasters can have devastating effects on communities all over the world. They can destroy homes, land, and lives. It is important in those times to pull together and work like a team. Nabors Drilling company knows of this all too well and are giving back whenever they can.
About a year ago Hurricane Harvey swept over the southern region of the United States, hitting Texas particularly hard. Everything was destroyed in the wake of the hurricane and the whole community was devastated. Luckily there were local businesses that took the reins and jumped in to help where ever they could. The local Houston Food Bank stepped in to give food to people who needed it. H-E-B, a grocery store company also pitched in providing food to hurricane victims.
Nabors Drilling was also on call to help where they were needed. They opened up their on-site kitchen so devastated Hurricane Harvey victims could have a nice hot meal, three times a day. The Chief Executive Officer Anthony Petrello also donated his own money to matched the employee’s relief contributions. The employees donated almost $174,000 dollars and the fund was called the Nabors Disaster Relief Fund. Employees were also quick to take the time out of their lives to help victims. They were transported all over the place, even to the Gulf Coast to help. Once again Anthony Petrello came through and offered that Nabors would pay for the time employees were helping the local community. Some of the employees were also effected by the hurricane and also needed help.
The drilling company is known for their good deeds, giving back whenever they can. They have donated to organizations like Bike MS and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Nabors also keeps employee in mind and have already donated well over $3 million dollars to the educational scholarships to the children of employees. Tony Petrello is an active philanthropist along with his wife Cynthia. That is one of the things they connected with, giving back to those less fortunate. They are particularly passionate about giving back to children with neurological disorders, which is what their daughter suffers from. Anthony learned that they was certainly not enough research in childhood neurological disorders, making treatments and cures far from reach. The Petrello family have donated millions of dollars to the Texas Children’s Hospital where they have a team caring for their daughter.
