to United Way of St. Charles
Valero St. Charles Refinery recently announced that it has raised over $1,000,000 for United Way of St. Charles and its partner agencies. This marks the first time in the non-profit’s 60-year history that a single organization has donated in excess of $1,000,000 through the annual fundraising campaign.
“I am proud to be associated with the most giving employees any company could wish for,” said Ralph Phillip, Vice President and General Manager of Valero St. Charles Refinery. “They willingly give of their time, energy and funds for the most worthy cause.”
Each year, Valero and its employees make pledges to support the United Way through donations or ongoing payroll deductions. Valero St. Charles frequently achieves 100 percent participation as well as the highest per capita giving levels among St. Charles Parish employers.
“We are both humbled and inspired by the extreme generosity of Valero and its employees,” stated John Dias, Executive Director of United Way of St. Charles.
“Raising over a million dollars is no small feat and an accomplishment to be quite proud of. Children, adults and seniors in St. Charles Parish will have their lives directly impacted by the kindness of this extraordinary achievement.”
In the past 5 years, Valero St. Charles Refinery has contributed over $4.7 million to United Way of St. Charles.
