The annual Valero Texas Open golf tournament for the benefit of children’s charities generated close to $9 million to help charities throughout Valero’s service footprint. We are happy to be the recipient of $10,000 of that corporate charitable giving. Valero’s recent $10,000 gift to us will help fund the Backpack Program at Booker T. Washington School in Port Arthur.
The Backpack Program sends nutritious food home with children at-risk of weekend hunger to help their families supplement their weekend diet. This generous support from Valero will help provide weekend food for 50 – 60 students for an entire school year.
Thanks to Valero and the community partners who helped it raise these funds for providing this great support to Booker T. Washington School students!
