Gulfside Dental - Donation Site
Twelve workers were injured in a fire at a refinery on Wednesday, April 17th at the ExxonMobil refinery in Beaumont, TX. Four of the injured are still in critical condition at UTMB Medical Center in Galveston, TX.
Due to the severity of the injuries, Jimmie Solomon, Dustin Creekwood, Chad McDonald, and Lance Smith could be hospitalized for up to eight months, resulting in a loss of income for their families. Gulfside Dental has volunteered to be a donation site for these families.
“In a week’s time we had the tragedy in Boston, in West, and right here in Beaumont,” says Dr. Ashley DeMarco of Gulfside Dental. “We wanted to help so we volunteered to be a donation site for the families of the ExxonMobil fire. The response from our clients and friends has been terrific so far, but the need is tremendous.”
The families are in need of household items, diaper, baby formula, etc. as well as monetary donations. Donations can be dropped off at Gulfside Dental, 4179 Dowlen Rd. in Beaumont, Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:00am and 6:00pm.
The Contract companies have set up a fund to provide an avenue for those individuals want to donate money. Contributions to the fund can be made in person or by mail, cash or check only, to any of the numerous Community Bank locations. The account is listed as “Signature Industrial Services Benefit Account” and the account number is 21206833.
