Phillips Energy Names Boys and Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula Recipient of Annual Giving Tuesday Fundraising
Phillips Energy will support the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula, earmarked for the Gloucester location,on Giving Tuesday that falls on Nov. 29.
Giving Tuesday encourages charities, families, businesses and individuals to follow the post-Thanksgiving shopping blitz with efforts to help local communities.
Phillips Energy will donate 10% of sales from its public gas station near Gloucester Point – 2586 George Washington Memorial Highway in Hayes – to the nonprofit.
“Giving Tuesday gives us an opportunity to take our collective giving spirit and spread it a little further by helping people and causes in our community who need it most,” said Elizabeth McCormick, Vice President, Phillips Energy. “This year, we’re excited to support an organization in our community that inspires our future leaders with an excellent foundation.”
The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula, which includes a location in Gloucester, serves more than 6,000 youth, providing boys and girls with a safe place to learn and grow, foster ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals, and offer life-enhancing programs and character development experiences.
Over the years, Phillips Energy’s Giving Tuesday philanthropy efforts have supported the Bread for Life Community Food Pantry, the Alzheimer’s Association, The Samaritan Group, the Laurel Shelter, the Gloucester Housing Partnership and the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society. Most recently in 2021 Phillips Energy donated $1,500 of proceeds to The House That Small Business Built, a Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg project currently under construction in Charles City.
