PG&E gives $50,000 to local American Red Cross for disaster preparedness

PG&E and the local American Red Cross are teaming up to help people prepare a disaster game plan.

On Sunday, PG&E presented a check for $50,000 to Be Red Cross Ready at the Day of the Dead Festival in Santa Maria.

The money will cover the cost of disaster preparedness information pamphlets and education classes.

"The highest calling of PG&E is ensuring the safety of our communities and the public, and not far behind that is ensuring that we have healthy, vibrant, and strong communities, and one of the ways we do that is through partnering with organizations like Red Cross," said Blair Jones, a spokesperson for PG&E.

Sunday's donation is part of PG&E's $2.5 million commitment to support the Red Cross. The $50,000 grant covers people in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.
