The team helps local food pantries and women’s shelters by donating time, collecting food and clothing, cleaning up the local communities and assisting with grounds-keeping efforts at the local Cerebral Palsy camp. Refinery employees have helped raise money to benefit the United Way, Muscular Dystrophy Association, the American Cancer Society, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and other organizations. On average, nearly 300 refinery volunteers donate about 2,500 hours of their time and thousands of dollars to local charitable organizations annually. For more information, please visit
