Last year Hurricane Harvey took a devastating toll on the residents of Texas. It was a horrible scene of destruction that wiped out everything in its path including people’s homes. Many were left homeless without and were in need of food, water, and shelter. It was captured all over the news. It was an image of flooding and destruction. With such a strong need for supplies local businesses stepped in to help like The Houston Food Bank and H-E-B. Nabors Industries jumped on the bandwagon immediately to do what they could for the hurting community. Employees jumped in to help by aiding in relief efforts. Instead of enjoying their normal activities like grabbing coffee or relaxing at the company property they jumped in to action. Some employees were sent to the Gulf Coast area to help. In the midst of this Nabors Industries offered to pay employees for taking time off of work to help the survivors. Along with the employees relief contributions Anthony Petrello matched the funds to show his support. Half of the funds totaled $173,622. They called it the Nabors Disaster Relief Fund. On top of that Nabors offered up their on-site kitchen facilities to families effected by Hurricane Harvey. This way they could cook large volumes of meals three times a day for the community.
