PAGE 10 THE FLORALA NEWS SEPTEMBER 1, 2010 Making This Right Beaches Claims Cleanup ,Economic Investment Environmental Restoration Health and Safety Wildlife For general information visit: For help or information: (866) 448,5816 I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here, - Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the' beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed. Restoring Gulf Communities We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been working with impacted communities since day one. Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping. Restoring The Economy BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners, helping to make them whole. More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this will be paid by taxpayers. BP has also given gradts of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches. Restoring The Environment We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast. And we'vededicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage. Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are or neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do everything we can to make this right.
