The United Way

The United Way has been a big part of the CITGO culture for more than 40 years. Each year our refineries have fundraising events that raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the United Way in our local communities. Lake Charles employees have been contributing since 1975, and Corpus Christi and Lemont employees have been contributing since 2009 and 1998 respectively. We are proud of our roots in supporting the United Way.
