When you ask a person with resources and lots of influence to help people in need, most of them will respond in a positive way. This is exactly what Narbors Industries Chief Executive Officer Tony Petrello did for the Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston. After this disaster struck in August of 2018, many residents within the city were flooded with water. At least one-fifth of Houston was underwater. Petrello did not make any excuses about why he could not help people. He realized what needed to be done and just went to work.
Narbors is an energy company located in Houston area. The organization has employees that live within this city. When the hurricane struck it caused quite a few of the company’s employees to lose their homes. Petrello knew that this was not a good situation for them or for the people in the community.
He decided to give his employees paid time off work, so they could help the community to recover. He then sent out crews of his employees to volunteer in the relief effort. Narbors employees helped local residents by setting up makeshift kitchen areas to feed people. They provided three meals a day to people in need within some of the areas of the city.
They also helped to clean up the city and to find missing people if there was a need. This effort made by Narbors is nothing new, but it has been well appreciated. Houstonians were very appreciative of Narbors aid. Not everyone knew about Narbors but for those who did they realized how much they really cared. They did not sit back and watch people suffer; they go involved to make things better.
Tony Petrello has always had this kind of attitude. He is natural philanthropist at heart. He has given to many organizations in the past. His company has been there in the past when problems have impacted communities. Petrello not only gives because it is a part of corporate responsibility, he gives because he wants to seriously change the bad situations that people experience. Hurricane Harvey has been a destructive force that caused people to become homeless and it also caused billions of dollars in property damage. Thankfully, leaders such as Tony Petrello is passionate about helping others when they need it the most.
