Total Petroleum Puerto Rico supports hospital personnel with gasoline donation
San Juan, March 30, 2020 - Total Petroleum Puerto Rico will donate gasoline cards to hospitals in Puerto Rico so that their hospital staff may have access to free gas during the emergency period caused by Covid-19.
“We want to contribute and support the health personnel working in Puerto Rico hospitals who are leading the fight in this crisis,” said Juan José Raga, General Manager of Total Petroleum Puerto Rico.
Total Petroleum Puerto Rico’s donation has a value of $30,000 and the cards will be available while the funds last. Total Petroleum Puerto Rico will be coordinating the distribution of the cards through hospital administrators/directors.
“Hospital administrators will distribute the cards to personnel who they consider essential to continue their work during this pandemic,” explained Juan José Raga.
He added that “our network includes 200 gas stations open throughout the island that will be available to personnel from active hospitals throughout Puerto Rico.”
