On the morning of December 20th, 2016 the staff at Loudenslager Elementary School welcomed volunteers from Paulsboro Refining Company and their two truckloads full of Christmas presents for Paulsboro families. This gracious donation was possible through the Paulsboro Refining Company’s Adopt-A-Family program, where employees from the company picked families to sponsor, then purchased and wrapped gifts for the children. Once all the gifts were collected, volunteers from the company delivered the gifts to Loudenslager Elementary School where the families will be able to pick up their presents. "Each year the Paulsboro Refinery looks forward to supporting the families of Paulsboro students through Adopt-A-Family. There is a great deal of anticipation and even competition as demand to support is high." - Mark Wilgus from Paulsboro Refining Company stated. Through Mark Wilgus and the Paulsboro Refinery’s efforts, 16 families benefited from campaign.
