Our thoughts are with all of the people from Florida to North Carolina who were impacted by Hurricane Matthew. This storm was extremely destructive with high winds and flooding that reached well beyond the coast. Pictures of the flooding, stories of downed trees, damaged homes, a homes going over a week without power bring home the scope of this storm. As in the past, our partnership with the Salvation Army helps reach people in times of need. As an example, the Salvation Army to date has distributed 211,470 meals, 3,854 food boxes, sheltered 1,293 people, operated 92 mobile canteens, and logged over 40,600 hours from staff and volunteers in the impacted areas.
Donations made to The Salvation Army, specific to the Hurricane Matthew (by indicating in the memo: "Disaster Relief; Hurrican Matthew") are allocated 100% directly to the hurricane recovery efforts. When specified for the particular recovery effort, no portion of the donation is allocated to administrative or overhead support.
If you are interested, donations can be made by:
- Sending a check earmarked "Disaster Relief; Hurricane Matthew" to your local Salvation Army office. Your local branch can be found by putting your zip code in at the following link: Locate your local Salvation Army office.

- Call the Salvation Army at: 1-800-SAL-ARMY. Be sure to designate the donation for the "Disaster Relief; Hurricane Matthew."
BPAMA partnered with The Salvation Army (SA) based on learnings from the BP Marketers following the deadly Birmingham, AL tornadoes in 2011. The SA is a member of the Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) which facilitates Interagency cooperation while responding to disasters. This group works closely with EMA and FEMA with a case management process as an integral part of the cross-reference to ensure that services are not duplicated.

Partnering for SuccessSince 1974, BPAMA has been the unparalleled leader in alliance between the Marketer and Supplier in the Petroleum Industry. The strength of BPAMA lies in the power of partnership, Marketers and BP coming together as collaborators to share business expertise, insights and shape the future for the BP branded business with the goal of achieving win-win opportunities. BPAMA members influence strategy and program decisions impacting BP's jobber channel of trade. Programs are developed with Marketer’s input, strategic decisions are identified early, and creative approaches to problems and growth are explored. Add a vendor program where suppliers and Marketers can access goods and services needed for their businesses and BPAMA truly adds value to those who belong.
BPAMA is led by a group of Marketers who are willing to volunteer their time to work on behalf of all BP branded jobbers. By using their knowledge of the industry, helping to identify key issues you all face, and work with their peers, this group of Marketers helps to add value to all our members by strengthening the BP brand. BPAMA is run by an Executive Director who reports to the National Leadership Board. The NLB is made up of 14 Marketers and 4 BP Senior Managers. We invite you to get involved with your Association by becoming a NLB member, joining one of the Working Committees, or by simply reaching out to a NLB member or Affiliate Member and see what BPAMA has to offer.
