Chevron Volunteers Help Get Xenophon Show-ready

Corporate Caring Week is the largest corporate volunteer program in the Bay Area. It is coordinated every September and brings thousands of employees from local companies to assist Bay Area non-profits. For over 15 years, Xenophon has posted projects and has had numerous groups from Chevron and other companies come to the center to volunteer their time and energy. We have had decks built, run-in sheds for our horses, shade structures, bark spread, planting done and paint applied just about everywhere.

This year, a fabulous group from Chevron’s Richmond Refinery came and gave 4 hours of their valuable time. We needed help to spruce up the center for our annual horse show. This included pulling weeds, replanting in our flower beds, spreading bark, pruning back bushes and painting. There was no slouching with this group, and the amount they accomplished in 4 hours was remarkable. They completely filled our dump trailer with trimmings and weeds. Thank you to Shad, Angelica, Valerie, Silv, Steve,and John for all your hard work. Our Horse Show was a huge success and the center literally shined. We looked like the professional organization we are. Couldn’t have done it without your help!!
