At E&B Natural Resources, contributing to the civic life of a community is a deeply rooted part of our corporate culture and we are proud of this commitment. Despite the economic downturn, our company continues to prioritize participating in building community service programs. A few are highlighted below.
Our involvement with the non-profit Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (T*A*P*S) provides immediate and long-term emotional help, hope and healing to those who are grieving the death of a loved one in military service to America. E&B raised over $200,000 for the program.
In 2016, E&B teamed up for the inaugural year of a program to provide graduating high school seniors exposure to the California oil and gas industry through a summer employment program. In collaboration with several school districts and other energy producers, the program provides exposure to quality career options along the educational spectrum.
E&B has proudly contributed over $10,000 since 2013 to the Kern Environmental Education Program (KEEP) which offers residential outdoor science education for 5th and 6th graders attending school in Kern County, California. Children learn about ecological concepts while they explore and study a variety of ecosystems through first-hand experiences at a coastal campus.
Since 2011, E&B Natural Resources has donated over 350 Christmas trees and $20,000 in gift cards to Kern County, California families in the Oildale community in partnership with the Olive Knolls Church.
E&B has contributed over $23,000 to Energy Partners over the last four years, a non-profit focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in Santa Barbara County.
In Los Angeles County, E&B provided transportation for nearly 200 junior high school students in Carson, California to attend the first annual STEMStarts at West LA College. The festival ignited the interest and imaginations of youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Along with our community commitments, E&B received an Award for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility for a variety of actions ranging from simple gestures such as changing the corporate headquarters landscaping to reduce water use to making non-profit contributions of over $150,000.
We are dedicated to work closely with our neighbors and place a high priority on investing in community programs.
