Red Cross thanks CenterPoint Energy following Minnesota bridge collapse

The American Red Cross Twin Cities Area Chapter wrote to thank CenterPoint Energy for the use of the company's parking lot near its water treatment facility along the Mississippi River on Oct. 25. CenterPoint Energy allowed Red Cross employees who work in the building across the street to park their vehicles in the company's lot, freeing the Red Cross lot for use by their guests.

The letter reads: “With your assistance, we were able to accommodate the State Legislature, survivors of the bridge collapse, and local citizens and news media for a hearing regarding the bridge. I know that the survivors who are now confined to wheel chairs or have serious mobility problems were especially grateful for the thoughtfulness and respect your cooperation allowed us to show them.”
