The employee-driven Team CITGO personifies the spirit of volunteerism at the CITGO Lemont Refinery. Contributing their time, talent and treasure to neighborhood clean-up and beautification projects, collections of food and clothing for area human service agencies and meeting other needs in local communities, Team CITGO lives up to its motto of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Team CITGO activities include helping the local food pantries and women’s shelters, spending time cleaning up the local communities and assisting with grounds-keeping efforts at the local Cerebral Palsy camp. Refinery employees have helped raise money to benefit the United Way, Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
We take great pride in our civic involvement and diligently volunteer for numerous benevolent causes locally and nationally. In 2015, more than 400 refinery volunteers donated more than 2,025 hours of their time and thousands of dollars to local charitable organizations annually. Listed below are just a few of the community organizations with which we have worked:
