On January 22, CPChem and the Sweeny Independent School District announced a $1.7 million contribution to the district’s new career and technology education (CTE) center. The donation reflects a shared commitment to education and workforce development, and provides high school students the industry skills needed to compete in the workplace. The Chevron Phillips Chemical CTE Center offers courses focused on science, technology, engineering and math, as well as professional communications, agriculture, architecture and construction, business and health.
In response to the unprecedented challenges of 2020, we strategically prioritized support to nonprofit organizations on the front lines of COVID-19 to strengthen: (1) immediate relief efforts, (2) food security, and (3) health and safety.
In 2020, we reevaluated our giving strategy to make certain our approach leads to meaningful development within our communities. CPChem continues to cultivate strong relationships with communities and will never stop working to improve our position as a neighbor of choice.
We supported several nonprofits focused on providing immediate relief in forms of rent and utilities assistance, outreach to seniors, clothing and household items for the displaced, and job readiness services.
Establishing food security was a top priority in 2020 as unemployment rose across the United States. A loss of household income magnified the hardships of many in our community already struggling to afford basic needs, and CPChem supported efforts
to feed those in need.
We have a vested interest in the health and safety of our communities, just as we do for our employees and contractors. In 2020, CPChem supplied much-needed personal protective equipment for healthcare workers, first-responders and educators. We also provided sanitation equipment and created opportunities for COVID-19 testing in underserved communities.
The challenges that many communities faced during the COVID-19 pandemic further emboldened our commitment to care for our neighbors and inspired us to pivot our charitable giving plans to address these issues. We are honored to donate resources like time, money and expertise to worthy causes that improve lives.
We aim to enrich people’s lives and the communities where we live and work.
