Phillips 66’s Long-standing Partnership with JA Brings Financial Literacy to Life at Linden Schools

– Several volunteers from the Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery team proudly present Junior Achievement of New Jersey‘s Vice President of Development & Communications, Dawn Schwartz, a generous $10,000 donation to fund JA’s local elementary school programs. Annually, Phillips 66 volunteer role models bring JA to life at School Number 2 and School Number 4, in Linden, New Jersey, and the students look forward to their return each year

Mary Phillips, Community Relations Coordinator and JA program coordinator for the refinery explained, “We are committed to the betterment of the communities in which we work and live and are counting on our young people to be the future generations of leaders, employers, and responsible citizens. Phillips 66 is proud to empower the young people in the community to own their economic success starting as early as their kindergarten years. Phillips 66’s long-standing partnership with JA enables us to continue having a positive impact in the communities where we operate our business.”

“JA is grateful for Phillips 66’s annual donation and employee engagement through their volunteerism. Many students lack role models and by bringing volunteers from Phillips 66 into the Linden School classrooms we are exposing the children to careers in industry as well as inspiring them to dream big and reach their full potential,” said Catherine Milone, President, JA of NJ.
