Employees at the MPLX Bluestone Complex in Pennsylvania are putting their time and money into the community. In May, employees volunteered to box up food for Community Partnership (CP), a community action agency that serves Butler County, Pennsylvania, to distribute to those in need.

“We were able to help 250 families in 45 minutes,” said Brittany Dean, MPLX Gathering & Processing Advanced Administrative Assistant. “We are excited to continue building this partnership to benefit our community.”

In addition to funding utility assistance, free income tax preparation, and transitional housing programs, CP pursues a "food first" approach to poverty alleviation. Working across the spectrum of the food system, from agricultural development to charitable food support, CP seeks to promote stability for its clients as they work towards economic security and wholeness.

In October 2022, MPLX hosted a charity golf outing to benefit CP. They raised a total of $20,000 for the organization.

The Bluestone complex is part of the Marcellus Operations and used for natural gas gathering, cryo processing, fractionation, and supports rail and truck logistics.
