Chevron will be giving away free gas and gas gift cards this week to residents of Southwest Louisiana.

The event will be Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 9 a.m. The company will give away 8,000 gallons of gas and $15,000 in gas gift cards to citizens of locals and first responders there.

This giveaway is in collaboration with charitable organization Louisiana Coastal Relief and Recovery and Retif Oil and Fuel, a Chevron distributor.

Southwest Louisiana residents and emergency personnel are invited to stop by Grand Lake High School to receive up to 20 gallons of free gasoline per household and the gas gift cards. The distribution site is located behind the school’s elementary wing at 1039 LA-384 in Lake Charles.

The fuel and gas cards will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to as many people as possible to help with their immediate fuel needs.

Additionally, Chevron recently donated $500,000 to various organizations to provide hurricane relief assistance to Cameron and Calcasieu parishes. The charitable groups include the American Red Cross, the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana and Louisiana Coastal Relief and Recovery.

Chevron is also coordinating employee supply drives and matching employees’ charitable contributions.
