During these challenging times, with local charities under stress, Keystone XL is working with the City of Glasgow and Valley County in Montana to help put together baskets of essential items for those in need.
The $20,000 donation in Montana is part of our long history of partnering with local communities along the route in both Canada and the U.S., whether it’s helping to combat childhood hunger in Montana or upgrading communication equipment for first responders in Alberta.
U.S. Project Vice-President, Keystone XL
The donation in Montana will help support the needs of the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 emergency, including seniors on fixed incomes and low-income families. Totes filled with household cleaners and hygiene products, such as toothpaste, dish and laundry soap and shampoo, will be distributed during the third week of May to families in need. They will be able to drive up and receive the products.
Over the last three years, Keystone XL has donated more than $1.6 million to communities in three states and two provinces
This donation is part of a broader giving effort across North America by TC Energy, the company that’s building Keystone XL.
TC Energy has also launched the TC Energy Giving Portal, to further help organizations across the United States and Canada to support people and communities affected by COVID-19.
This initiative is fundraising for incredible causes in the U.S., Canada or Mexico, as they are working hard to provide relief for COVID-19, including Feeding America, Center for Disaster Philanthropy, UNICEF Mexico and United Way Centraide Canada.
The best part? Anyone can donate! And TC Energy will match donations to 100 per cent up to $500,000.
We’re also matching donations through our employee giving program, Empower. We are actively encouraging our employees to give to causes in our project and operations areas, including the Valley County Communication Foundation Inc. in Montana.
Every dollar donated by our employees will be matched at 200 percent.
