Beaver County United Way Receives $100,000 Donation
from Bechtel Group Foundation
The Beaver County United Way has received a $100,000 donation from Bechtel Group Foundation to help local agencies respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
The donation from Bechtel, the main works contractor for the Shell Pennsylvania Chemicals Project in Beaver County, is one of the first awarded from the Bechtel COVID-19 Relief Fund, created earlier this month to address urgent human needs in the communities worldwide where the company’s employees live and work.
Beaver County United Way Executive Director Mike Rubino said, “This donation is vital to sustain the local human service charities that have been devasted by the pandemic. Not only has their client base increased, but their ability to hold annual funding raising events has been crippled. We are so grateful to Bechtel Group Foundation and the Shell Pennsylvania Chemicals Team for this unprecedented support.”
“We nominated Beaver County United Way for this special grant program because of the organization’s effectiveness in delivering services that benefit all of our project’s neighbors,” said Bechtel Senior Project Manager Paul Marsden. “The Pennsylvania Chemicals Project and all associated with it continue to invest in the local community and the region in helping to build a positive and sustaining legacy.”
The United Way of Beaver County is a centralized, non-profit fundraising organization allocating resources, primarily through its member agencies, which provide for the human needs of the community. The Beaver County United Way will use the $100,000 gift to support local United Way agencies that provide food, emergency financial assistance, and physical and mental health services.
