Refinery-wide participation in the Adopt-A-Family campaign helped ensure a happy holiday for a number of Detroit-area families.

Detroit refinery employees personally donated nearly $17,000 to support 20 families, including 54 children. The funds were used to purchase winter clothing, boots, household necessities and toys to help address both the family’s needs and wants for the season.

 “It was inspiring to see each department so excited and eager to support their families,” said Dynita McCaskill, a field operator at the refinery.  “The planning and shopping for Adopt-A-Family was one of the best team building activities I have ever participated in.”
