E-RECYCLE DAY

Hundreds of Southwest Louisiana residents recycle their unwanted electronics at CITGO E-Recycle Day. The annual event provides residents with the opportunity to recycle their unwanted electronics, completely free of charge. Items collected include TVs and monitors, cell phones, computers, batteries, household items containing mercury, and other consumer electronics. This year, 487 vehicles drove through the line with drop offs totaling nine roll-off boxes (about 4.5 semitrailers!) including 788 light bulbs, 27.5 pounds of mercury and 250 pounds of batteries.

FRIENDLY RIVALRY FUELS GOOD

CITGO partners with University of Michigan Athletics (U of M) and Michigan State University Athletics (MSU) to fuel a rivalry season benefitting local Michigan charities. Using the Club CITGO app, fan participation results in two donations from CITGO to designated charities. The school that logs the most points during the promotion receives a $10,000 donation from CITGO for its school's charity. The runner-up receives a $5,000 donation.

The U of M's selected charity is C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. MSU supports the Michigan State University Food Bank. Find out how this annual promotion works here.

STEM TALENT PIPELINE

CITGO provides high school graduates from area schools with scholarships toward degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at four-year accredited universities. As part of the STEM Talent Pipeline, ten students from each participating school district were awarded scholarships toward their college-level STEM education. Throughout the company's operational footprint, the CITGO STEM Talent Pipeline initiative has supported programs that promote the importance of STEM education and provide educators with the resources they need. Find out other ways CITGO has touched the lives of nearly 35,000 students and educators across its regions here.
