Marathon Petroleum Corporation once again celebrated United Way Days of Caring.
For the past 25 years, the Marathon Petroleum headquarters in Findlay, Ohio, has spent a series of days devoted to helping its local United Way agencies with short-term, project-focused volunteer service that would not typically be covered in their annual budgets.
This year, 953 volunteers from Marathon Petroleum assisted with projects benefiting numerous United Way agencies and community organizations.
Marathon Petroleum employees from more than 18 organizational teams participated. For example, the company’s IT team had 66 employees volunteer for projects for the American Red Cross, Campfire and Century Health, while 58 employees from Marine/Terminal, Transport and Rail turned out for projects at Camp Berry, Habitat for Humanity, the Hancock Parks District and 50 North (formerly Agency on Aging).
“We had another successful week,” said Andrea Kuenzli, a financial analyst at Marathon Petroleum, who coordinated the Days of Caring schedule for the headquarters volunteers. “Every year I am impressed by our volunteers and their willingness to donate time to make their community better. I would like to thank everyone who volunteered.”
