NEXEN/INPEX Donates to Adult Literacy Program
At a special cheque presentation ceremony held on September 5, in Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Nexen and joint venture partner INPEX Gas British Columbia Ltd. (IGBC) announce a $100,000 donation over three years to the Fort Nelson Community Literacy Society.
The Fort Nelson Community Literacy Society is a non-profit charitable society that works with the people in the Fort Nelson region to increase skills, encourage further education, and develop the value of learning for life.
“Community Investment at Nexen is more than just financial support for charitable organizations,” says Brock Johnson, Manager, Production Operations, Shale Gas. “Through our ReachOut program, Nexen is committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work. Investing in communities is not just the way we do business; it demonstrates Nexen’s commitment to building capacity in our community.”
“We recognize that the need and demand for English lessons and settlement assistance to newcomers in the Fort Nelson area,” says Shoji Sorimachi, President of INPEX Gas British Columbia Ltd. “IGBC will continue to contribute to sustainable development of the community as good corporate citizen in Canada.”
As signature sponsors, Nexen and IGBC’s gift will support the administration of FNCLS’ Adult Learning Centre, which includes staffing, technology enhancements, program supplies and resources for workshops.
“We want to thank Nexen and IGBC for their support,” says Kristy Chaffey, Adult/Family Literacy Coordinator. “With stable funding in place over the next three years, FNCLS can continue to provide adult learners with programing that will benefit their workplace, family and community.”
