Chevron has built an enduring legacy of compassion, donating funds to worthy causes and encouraging employees to make a similar positive impact. Since the company’s inception, the corporation has invested more than $15 million (and countless volunteer hours) in communities where its employees live and work.
Each year, Chevron Phillips sponsors a UTMB mobile mammography van site, which has provided nearly 200 free clinical breast exams and mammograms for medically underserved women. The company’s commitment to the Gift of Life’s prostate cancer programs has helped the organization provide primary care tests and prostate cancer treatment for medically underserved Southeast Texas men. Through this initiative, the Gift of Life has provided treatment and support for 69 men diagnosed with prostate cancer at its screenings.
Thanks to wonderful supporters like Chevron Phillips, the Gift of Life has been able to extend the lives of more than 275 Southeast Texans who have been diagnosed and treated through its efforts.
