Marathon Pipe Line LLC (MPL) has a long tradition of living the company’s values during the Holiday Season through its Adopt A Family initiative. In 2012, the fundraiser for Adopt A Family was a very unique sculpture contest, where employees constructed sculptures out of cans of food and other non-perishable items. This contest was a resounding success, with over $1,000 contributed, and over 6,600 cans of food donated by MPL employees.
For the past two years, Marathon Pipe Line has conducted a pilot Safe Digging School Program to educate students about underground utilities and the importance of calling 811 before digging. Marathon employees visited local public schools in Findlay, Ohio that were located near a Marathon pipeline
On Monday, August 8th, employees of Marathon Pipe Line’s Damage Prevention Department organized the planting of a new tree on Main Street in Findlay. Several days before the tree was scheduled to be planted, the tree service contractor called 811. This call began the process of having the underground utilities, such as electric, gas, and water lines located and marked. “We wanted to do something that raised the awareness of 811 and at the same time help beautify Findlay,” said Damage Prevention Supervisor Miriam Kuhn.
