Every year around the holidays, Energy Transfer employees participate in traditions that give back to the communities where we operate. This year, our Marcus Hook Industrial Complex (MHIC) and Eagle Point facility participated in several fundraising events around the holiday season.
This Christmas, our MHIC team raised a total of $3,752 for our Secret Santa program. With that money, we were able to purchase 10 gifts, which went to two families in Marcus Hook. Each family also received a gift card to a local grocery store to use for a nice holiday dinner. The remaining money was donated to the Angel Food Pantry located just a few blocks from MHIC. Our employees are already looking forward to helping out our neighbors again next year.
The 2019 holiday season also marked the second annual MHIC 4-Minute Plank Challenge to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Fourteen of our team members competed in the challenge, which raised $7,500 for CHOP. We were thrilled to present the money to CHOP right before Christmas.
Just across the Delaware River, our Eagle Point team members held their annual bike drive to support the local Marine Toys for Tots organization. Every year, this bike drive has grown in size and has become an incredible source of pride for the Energy Transfer Eagle Point team.
This community giving effort started in 2014 with 30 bikes and has grown to 203 bikes this year, along with a $1,000 donation to the Marine Toys for Tots organization. These donations come from Energy Transfer employees and individual contractors who help support the facility.
We are honored to be able to support our neighbors and give back to the communities that welcome us. We look forward to expanding our contributions in 2020 and beyond.
