DENVER — Oil and natural gas companies that operate wells in Colorado have collectively donated $1.5 million to the Red Cross to help victims of the flooding across the Front Range.

The Colorado Oil & Gas Association announced the donations Wednesday. They include $100,000 from Anadarko Petroleum Company, $200,000 from Conoco Phillips and $500,000 from Noble Energy.

“Just like me, my family, and neighbors, thousands of Coloradans have been displaced from our homes. I experienced firsthand how the Red Cross is immediately here to meet physical, emotional, and logistical needs,” said Tisha Schuller, the President and CEO of COGA.

Schuller and her family were evacuated from their home in Boulder County last week and so far have been unable to return.

The COGA urged its members to give the Red Cross over $1,000,000, said spokesman Doug Flanders.

“Noble Energy led the way with a gift of $500,000 and challenged all COGA members to match their gift to raise more than $1,000,000,” Flanders said.

“The American Red Cross is astounded by the generosity of Coloradans, including the outpouring of support by members of the Colorado Oil & Gas Association”, said Gino Greco CEO for the Colorado and Wyoming Region of the American Red Cross.
