Phillips 66

16 Black Employees Network (BEN) Update Giving the Gift of Literacy - Give Now! BEN (Black Employee Network) would like to announce a new fundraiser “Giving The Gift of Literacy” to purchase books for children living in poverty. For every dollar you contribute to the Gift of Literacy Book Drive, Phillips 66 will match your donation*. In partnership with First Book, BEN’s fundraiser will enable educators at Rodeo Hills Elementary & Carquinez Middle School to purchase new, high-quality books from the “Stories For All” Project representing diverse characters, voices, and life circumstances. First Book’s mission is to remove cost barriers from education so that every child has the chance to learn. Access to adequate resources is one of the greatest contributors to educational inequality in the United States, but research has identified vast ‘book deserts’ concentrated in low-income communities across the U.S.—with one community having what amounts to one book for 830 children.
