Wow, what a gift and an excellent example of corporate citizenship.

BHP Billiton, an international energy company, donated almost $11 million to the Shreveport YMCA this month. The money will be used to help build a brand new YMCA complex near Clyde Fant Parkway. Actually, next door to BHP headquarters.

Along with a competition swimming pool, soccer and baseball fields will be built and a nature trail. 

So why is BHP donating all this money?   

It's part of being a good corporate citizen and giving back to the community where its employees live and work.  

Well done.  

I'm James Smith.
