CITGO Oklahoma City Lubricants Plant Leads Neighborhood Beautification Project For "Care And Repair" Day
OKLAHOMA CITY, May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CITGO Petroleum Corporation and its lubricant blending and packaging plant in Oklahoma City partnered with the JFK Neighborhood Association (JFKNA) and the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) on April 14 for its first "Care and Repair" Day. Volunteers worked together to do minor repairs, yard work, tree removal and landscaping for two properties in the JFK area.
"We are proud of our community and the willingness to come together and help our neighbors. Improving these properties benefits not just the home owners, but everyone," said Walter J. Jacques, head of the Community Involvement Team at the Oklahoma State Department of Health. "We are grateful for our partners, including the CITGO OKC lubricants plant that came out today to clean-up these homes and help make the neighborhood a better place to live."
More than 24 volunteers from the lubricants plant joined volunteers from the JFKNA and OSDH to remove dead trees, clear sidewalks of dirt and weeds, mow overgrown grass and make other improvements as part of "Care and Repair" Day. CITGO, with support from Ron Walters Construction Services, provided construction equipment, lawn maintenance equipment, gloves and safety glasses and refreshments for the volunteers."We helped these families repair their properties with the hope that we provided much needed relief and sound care for them as well as their properties," said Bob Pine, plant manager of the CITGO OKC lubricants plant, "and neighbors that live in the area have expressed their appreciation to CITGO for these efforts." Since 1995, the CITGO lubricants plant in Oklahoma City has been dedicated to giving back to the communities it serves. Each year, the plant runs a variety of charity events, including regular clean-up of its 22-acre perimeter through the Adopt-a-Street program, blood drives, food and coat drives in the winter and fundraisers to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), of which CITGO is the largest corporate sponsor. CITGO, based in Houston, is a refiner, transporter and marketer of transportation fuels, lubricants, petrochemicals and other industrial products. The company is owned by PDV America, Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A., the national oil company of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
