For four days between October 16th and 24th the employees of Chevron opened their hearts and put on their work clothes to help the animals of the Wildlife Rehab & Education Center as a part of their “Chevron HumanKind Campaign.” For every 20 hours a Chevron employee volunteers at a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity of their choice, they can request a grant from Chevron for $500 dollars for the charity. In addition, Chevron will match one to one employee contributions to the charity. Wow!
President of Chevron Exploration Technology Company, Melody Meyer worked on the team led by Chevron employee, Tommy Lyle where she helped to build flight cages for the Wildlife Rehab & Education Center’s Education Ambassadors. Not only did these employees get their hands dirty for the love of our wild friends, they also purchased the necessary materials to build the flight cages.
Chevron’s HumanKind Campaign has encouraged their employees to learn more about charities and how they can lend a helping hand. “We hope employees who have participated in this program will come back and be a permanent volunteer long after their employee contribution has been made,” says Susie Hebert, Community Engagement Specialist for Chevron.
The Wildlife Rehab & Education Center is thankful for the generosity and support of the employees of Chevron and the Chevron HumanKind Campaign. Our animals can now continue to move forward towards a better tomorrow!
