SAN ANTONIO -- Tesoro Refining and Marketing Co. is once again a national corporate sponsor for the United States Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots Foundation. Last year, Tesoro raised more than $110,000 for the charitable organization. This year's campaign will run through the end of 2004.
"Toys for Tots is a wonderful program that makes the holidays a brighter time for so many deserving and underprivileged children," said Steve Wormington, Tesoro's executive vice president of marketing. "Last year's campaign was a tremendous success, thanks to our branded jobbers and dealers and company retail employees' enthusiastic support of this worthwhile cause.
"We were also very pleased by the positive response from the communities in which we operate and we anticipate this year's campaign to be as successful, if not more so, than last year's," Wormington added.
Monetary donations are being accepted at all participating Tesoro branded retail locations, including the 2Go Tesoro convenience stores. One hundred percent of the monetary donations received by Tesoro will be donated to Toys for Tots. Tesoro is unable to accept any toy donations.
