LINDEN—Employees from ConocoPhillips Bayway Refinery and Infineum USA L.P. in Linden joined together at Linden Lanes for a fundraiser that engaged employees and company leadership in raising money to fund Junior Achievement’s educational programs.
A total of eight teams comprising employees and family members participated in the bowl-a-thon, raising more than $2,500 for programs in Linden schools.
Both companies have long traditions of service and support for Junior Achievement across many decades. This past school year, 25 employee volunteers from ConocoPhillips Bayway Refinery taught 29 Junior Achievement classes in local schools, reaching more than 700 students, and Infineum colleagues volunteered in 4 Junior Achievement classes, teaching more than 120 students about 7 key program areas: business, citizenship, economics, entrepreneurship, ethics/character, financial literacy, and career development.
Junior Achievement programs span grades K-12, with age-appropriate curricula designed to teach elementary students about their roles as individuals, workers, and consumers and to prepare middle grade and high school students for key economic and workforce issues they will face.
