The Trainer Refinery has deep roots in Marcus Hook, Trainer, and Chester. Today, Monroe Energy continues to play a vital role in these communities and throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. We create jobs and strive to be a responsible corporate citizen. Our people serve on local boards and community organizations. We encourage volunteerism, and we organize and participate in a number of philanthropic activities, particularly those that support education and the children in our communities. We even maintain a fully staffed fire department, Monroe Energy Fire Dept. 86, which responds to local emergencies when asked. We do it all because it’s the right thing to do.
Serving children in our communities
We believe in the power of education, and we have helped fund educational trips for local elementary school students. We have donated slightly used computers, monitors, and printers to help close the digital divide in our schools. We contribute to scholarship organizations through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, and we participate in a number of events and programs that support young people in our community.
We are actively involved
We believe in giving back to the community — that’s the kind of people we hire and the kind of organization we are. Our team members serve on a variety of boards, from various economic and business development organizations to education and historic preservation boards. We participate in a number of community advisory groups, including the Environmental Advisory Council, the Chester Environmental Partnership, the Industry/Occupational Advisory Council and the Traffic Club of Philadelphia, as well as several business associations and chambers of commerce. We are also involved in fundraising on our own and in partnership with our contractors to support various philanthropic causes.
