LEMONT, Ill.—Feb. 25, 2022—The CITGO Lemont Refinery presented the Greater Joliet Area YMCA with a generous $7,500 donation at the Galowich Family YMCA on Houbolt Road in Joliet.

"CITGO has a long history of supporting initiatives in our community, and has been a wonderful partner of the Y for many, many years. We are humbled by CITGO's continued support of our mission and the communities we serve," added Leclair.
