Caltex, marketed by Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), continues to show its appreciation of and support for all frontliners by giving more fuel discounts and donations during this ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Until May 15, 2020, medical frontliners, uniformed personnel, local government unit (LGU) frontliners and delivery partners are entitled to a Php4.00 and Php2.00 per liter discount on gasoline and diesel purchases, respectively.
Caltex has also donated Php250,000 to the One Voice Pilipinas fund drive of its superstore partner, Landers. Under the program, every Php1,000 donation will secure a week’s worth of food for a family in need. Landers continues to receive donations through the Landers One Voice Pilipinas microsite.
Caltex employees pooled their resources and gave Php170,000 to the Kaya Natin! Foundation. Kaya Natin! aids in ferrying hospital workers from and to various pick-up and drop-off points in Metro Manila. This donation from Caltex employees was in addition to the earlier donation made by the Caltex Makati Credit Cooperative to the foundation.
Two of Caltex’s branded marketers have also reached out to the frontliners with their respective donation drives. Northern Star Energy Corp. handed over personal protective equipment (PPE) comprising N95 face masks, surgical masks and hazmat suits to the Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center and the Ospital ng Santa Cruz in Zambales. Northern Star, through the retailer of Caltex Candon 3, has also extended help to 43 barangays in Ilocos Sur, distributing live chickens and fresh milkfish to the residents.
William Tan Enterprise, Inc. donated 30 containers of 70 percent ethyl alcohol to frontliners in Palawan, including staff from various medical institutions and LGUs and uniformed personnel.
“We remain optimistic that we will all get through this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. As we all practice social distancing and personal isolation, our frontliners continue to fight the battle for us. To show our continued appreciation and support, we at CPI and our partners implemented fuel discounts for our frontliners. We have also initiated donation drives to affected families. Let us all stay indoors, stay safe and do our part to flatten the curve,” shares CPI Country Chairman Louie Zhang.
Chevron companies have also made an earlier donation of almost Php1 million to the Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Inc., JAC Liner, Kaya Natin! Foundation and Grab Philippines in support of the COVID-19 frontliners.
About 91 percent of Caltex stations remain operational amid the ECQ implemented in certain areas nationwide. These stations adhere to the 1-meter physical distancing rule and implement regular temperature checks and frequent cleaning of areas with high human touch points on top of the usual hygiene practices and standards.
