Celebrate with CITGO
A Decade of Impact

In 2014, the CITGO Caring for Our Coast initiative started as a yearlong series of projects focused on coastal conservation and restoration in remembrance of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Over the past decade, the program has grown to protect vulnerable coastal and inland habitats. CITGO has invested a total of $7 million in this program, which has resulted in the planting of almost 1 million trees and grasses, more than 200,000 hours of volunteer work and the collection of over 520,000 pounds of trash and debris.

The program has also been successful in restoring 12,000 acres of land. To mark the 10-year anniversary of the program, CITGO is awarding an additional $1 million in grants and organizing commemorative volunteer events.
