A group from Catlettsburg participate in Repair Affair

Recently, more than 20 Catlettsburg Refining, TT&R and Marine Repair employees and family members participated in the city of Ashland’s Repair Affair. Through this annual event, Ashland residents who do not have the means to repair their homes or properties can apply for assistance from the city. Those who qualify and are selected are assigned volunteers from the local community who join forces to lend a helping hand.

This year, the combined MPC team adopted five homes, with a variety of needs. Project work the teams completed included painting, repairing and shingling a roof, clearing gutters, refinishing a porch railing and repairing a porch floor section.

“So many thanks go out to the MPC team members who gave up most of a Saturday to work at this event,” said Nicci Triche, who helped coordinate MPC’s volunteer efforts. “It was such a great effort and really proves that MPC employees make good teams!”

“The city of Ashland and the residents were beyond thankful for our help and as one of the larger teams at the event, we were able to show them how much we, as a company, give back to the community,” added Donnie Kinnan, who also helped coordinate MPC’s volunteer efforts.
