Marathon Pipe Line LLC’s (MPL) Damage Prevention Department recently partnered with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
Prior to inspecting an MPL facility at Beaumont, Texas, Kevin Mouton pulled up to the place and found it abuzz. “There were bees swarming around a shop building, and I couldn’t tell if they were regular, American honey bees or Africanized, ‘killer’ bees,’ ” notes Mouton, a Mechanical Technician for MPL’s Mid-South Region based in Sugartown, La.
Although grateful for the gift of a swing set for use at a camp run by Findlay’s Children’s Mentoring Connection (CMC), Executive Director Jennifer Swartzlander needed help in retrieving the boxed-up playground equipment and in putting it together. Then she remembered MPL, which had come to CMC’s aid before.
While attending its annual meeting, held in Indianapolis in late 2013, about 40 members of MPC’s Environmental, Safety and Regulatory (ES&R) group wanted to perform a community-outreach project.
