On Jan. 29, representatives from the CITGO Corpus Christi Refinery and local CITGO Marketer Texas Star awarded the Foster Angels of South Texas Foundation $5,000 in CITGO Gift Cards.
The non-profit was a Fueling Good Project winner for its work improving the lives of foster children in South Texas.
“We are extremely grateful to have been chosen as one of the CITGO Fueling Good Project winners,” said Jennifer Starr, executive director at Foster Angels. “We strive to give foster children in South Texas the tools they need to live happy and successful lives. Thanks to CITGO and everyone who voted for us during the promotion, hundreds of deserving children in foster care will receive the help they need.”
The Foster Angels of South Texas Foundation helps meet the basic needs of foster children, including food, clothing and shelter. Foster Angels also provides life-enriching and life-enhancing experiences, such as tutoring and music, art and dance lessons. The organization will use the CITGO Gift Cards to help foster children get to work, school, soccer games, ballet classes, medical and dental appointments and so much more.
Since 2009, the CITGO Fueling Good programs have rewarded more than 220 charities, further helping them to do good in their own communities.
