Fueling Good. Rebuilding Lives.
As a company with operations throughout the Gulf Coast, CITGO experienced the devastation from Hurricane Harvey and Irma firsthand through the destruction of our employees’ homes and surrounding neighborhoods. Amidst restarting our refining operations soon after the storms, CITGO was dedicated to aiding our employees, neighbors, local authorities and partner organizations to carry out the critical work on the road to recovery.
Short-Term Recovery Efforts
CITGO joined our resilient business community, contributing monetary and non-monetary assistance, to support numerous organizations providing immediately needed critical services. In addition to hundreds of hours generously donated by TeamCITGO volunteers, CITGO donations supported relief efforts, including:
- $3 million in funds to the Greater Houston Community Foundation to provide immediate aid to affected residents in and around the Houston area
- 12,000+ gallons of fuel donated for law enforcement, firemen and other first responders in Houston
- Replacement of damaged school supplies for the Houston, Alief and Spring Branch Independent School Districts (ISDs)
- $500,000 in funding to the Coastal Bend Community Foundation for sheltering and temporary housing, food and supplies, healthcare and transportation for families
- 3,300 gallons of potable water to area residents
- 9,000 gallon fuel donation to local power plants and volunteer organizations helping with cleanups
Toward Long-Term Recovery
Recovery of affected communities will take years. That’s why to continue supporting those impacted by the storms, CITGO launched its Fueling Good. Rebuilding Lives. initiative in 2017. Through this effort, CITGO is donating $8 million in fuel sales toward restoring housing in impacted areas, including $6 million to Rebuilding Together Houston and $1.4 million to Habitat for Humanity of Aransas County. As the recovery efforts carry on, TeamCITGO volunteers will continue contributing their time and skills, working alongside our partners to help restore homes and neighborhoods back to their original state.
At CITGO, we understand the long-term impact disasters like Hurricane Harvey and Irma have on our communities, and we are committed to help our fellow citizens and neighborhoods recover every step of the way.
