Goodness on the GO: Baldwin CITGO Feeding Families During Coronavirus Pandemic
At CITGO, Fueling Good means doing our part to give back to the local communities in which we work and live. During the ongoing public health crisis, it’s more important than ever for communities to come together and support one another, and that includes local businesses.
Recently, a CITGO retail station in Baldwin, Louisiana heeded the call of the community. The CITGO Discount Food Mart located at 906 Main St in Baldwin, contributed plate lunches to community members in need, serving more than 150 lunches per day to people as they passed by the store.
The lunch donations were the idea of store owner and manager, Peter Nguyen. “Baldwin isn’t just home to our store. It’s home to our families, friends and customers I feel like giving back to the community is important because times like this, everybody needs each other,” said Nguyen.
For decades, generations of CITGO employees and local marketer and retail partners have made giving back a pillar of our business. We’re thrilled to see the outpouring of fueling good works in this difficult environment when our communities need each other most.
