Creating a Long Lasting Positive
Impact in Our Communities
Hess donated our former training center and adjacent land to Woodbridge Township, NJ. The township has transformed it into a fully accessible recreation facility with several components, including a turf field, pickle ball courts, volleyball courts and an outdoor track and greenhouse to provide recreational and career learning opportunities for hundreds of individuals, including those with special needs.
“Hundreds of children and adults with special needs will have opportunities now for recreation that they clearly would never have had without this facility and the Hess donation.”
– John McCormac, Woodbridge, NJ Mayor
Hess employees recently volunteered with non-profit Comp-U-Dopt to distribute approximately 300 computers to Houston families in need. The computers will help provide technology access to students so they may participate in online learning.
A drive-thru for computer distribution and additional precautions were implemented to protect families and volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hess teamed up with the Houston Rockets and Second Servings of Houston to host a “Dinner’s On Us” event as part of an ongoing effort to help feed families in need during these difficult times. Our Hess Food Services Team prepared 3,500 family-sized meals (28,000 individual meals) that were distributed via a contactless drive-thru outside of the Toyota Center.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Hess donated school supplies to all incoming Edison Middle School HISD students to help kick off the school year and assist in virtual learning as a part of our LEAP program.

Hess has donated more than 6,000 Hess Toy Trucks and STEM kits to North Dakota elementary schools, including sets to Gateway to Science Center, Inc., North Dakota’s hands-on science center. During the summer, STEM Adventure Campers are learning about fuel efficiency and business costs by comparing how the Hess toy trucks travel over different surfaces.

Hess employees who mentor with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston Beyond School Walls program connected virtually with their student matches from Edison Middle School.
