Hundreds clean up, fix up local public facilities
The 17th annual LyondellBasell Global Care Day is a worldwide community service initiative involving thousands of volunteers where the company has operations. Workers from 69 sites in 23 countries are participating.
Employees from several LyondellBasell facilities in this area participated in Global Care projects. These included North Shore Middle School, Thomas Bell Foster Park, Galena Park sports complex, Sheldon Lake Park, and general clean-up around the Channelview plant site.
Last Saturday approximately 100 volunteers from LyondellBasell’s Houston Engineering Center rebuilt an existing walking trail and memorial that was built for James Brown, a North Shore Middle School student who died 10 years ago. There was a rededication with the Brown family, volunteers, students and North Shore Middle School staff.
