Because the arts play a vital role in enhancing the lives of everyone in the community, Western Refining is honored to be among the major benefactors of such respected arts institutions as The El Paso Symphony, the Museum of Art, and the historic Plaza Theatre, one of the country’s most beautiful venues for the performing arts.


Western Refining has given generously both in dollars and time, to such organizations as The Ronald McDonald House, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the United Way, among others. Each group is better able to provide their important services to families in need.

Families also benefit from the annual Western Refining “Neighborhood Health Fair” in El Paso. This vitally important event, attended by hundreds of families, offers free medical testing, inoculations, blood pressure checks, diabetes screening, flu shots, blood donations, and kids’ fingerprinting. We believe this program, as much as any other we support, could provide the most important benefit of all to families — a longer and healthier life.
