Beginning in September, the United Way for Jackson and George Counties will once again raise funds and awareness for its services and member agencies during the annual giving campaign. Annuitants Freddie Perryman and Jerry Hoag will head the Refinery’s internal employee campaign.
The mission of the United Way is to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another. The organization has 19 member agencies, including groups like American Red Cross, Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence, Home of Grace and the Girl and Boy Scouts.
Employee contributions are eligible to be matched through Chevron’s Humankind program, doubling the impact of every donation. Funds donated by Chevron and its employees traditionally account for more than 30 percent of the entire community campaign.
Employees have two options when deciding how to contribute – they can give a onetime contribution or sign up for an automatic payroll deduction. The payroll deduction is arranged through the Humankind website, which is accessible from the Refinery’s intranet homepage.
As a way for the Refinery to recognize employees for their support to the annual campaign, drawings will be held for numerous prizes. All contributors will be entered into our annual prize drawing for the following: one $1,000 cash prize; one day off with pay; gas gift cards; a custom crafted Paul LeBatard filet knife; a reserved employee parking spot at the PNC and Admin. Building, and more.
