The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving is recognized as a national day of giving in the United States and this year Total employees in Houston marked this special day by giving back to a city still showing the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Total employees volunteered their time to help restore Buffalo Bayou Park, a popular spot for Houstonians that was filled with nearly 40 feet (12 meters) of water at the height of the Harvey flooding in early September 2017.

“The effects of Harvey are lasting and there’s still a long way to go for recovery, here in Houston, and in the Gulf Coast region as a whole,” says Tim Ziman, Vice President Strategy, Base Chemicals, who was among the group of Total employees working to remove sandy deposits still covering vegetation. “This is why it is important for Total and its employees to do their bit to help the community get back on its feet.”

Total is committed to contribute to the well-being of the local communities it operates in.
