ConocoPhillips makes $25K commitment to youth

ConocoPhillips' Superintendent of the Kenai LNG Facility, Peter Micciche presented a generous check to the Boys and Girls Club of the Kenai Peninsula at the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce luncheon last Tuesday. The $25,000 check is intended to supplement ConocoPhillips' support for youth development programs at all seven Boys & Girls Club locations on the Kenai Peninsula.

"I am proud to be a career employee of a company willing to invest in stronger communities. The company philosophy has been to determine where the Peninsula community feels support is most important, and they have provided generously to those organizations, which is why we have supported the Boys and Girls Club, The United Way, The Food Bank and many other community-sustaining organizations," added Micciche.

Two-hundred hands wrapped their fingers around a rope the length of two school busses, muscles tensed and yanked back in an all-out tug of war with 100 kids pitted against each other.
