Re: Your take on the gas companies??
In Athens Boro, where several homes were flooded, CHK sent in there crew from Great Plains to supply manual labor to anyone they could help. Great Plains is owned by CHK. They help carry flood debris out,pump basements, caryy the undamaged stuff out etc..etc..
During cleanup they supplied manual labor, loaders , skid steers and dump trucks to haul away all the flood trash, and there was a lot!
They supplied trucks to wash the mud off the streets so you could walk without slipping in mud.
they supplied cleaning supplies as well as water.
They did all of that and much more without being asked for help. They are still looking at ways to help.
Now I do realize that not everything they do is good, but when company's (talisman,chk,cheif,etc etc) step up and supply this much help for local comunitys, in a time when that type of help is badly needed, it's truely a good deed on there part.
I know from speaking to people who recieved that help that it was greatly appreciated.
I did not notice Dupont, Osram Sylvania, Mills Pride,CVS, Craftmaster or other large local corps doing nearly as much as the gas companys.
People may not be glad the business is in town, but they were certainly glad for the help.
Your never to old to learn something stupid
