The Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery Good Neighbor Fund is a grassroots effort that began in 1993 with a committee of six employee volunteers. The committee, which has evolved over time, continues to plan fundraising events for employees and their families to participate in, to raise money for organizations in local communities and have some fun at the same time. Over the years, the GNF has assisted with important needs in local communities, with a focus on educational materials and programs for schools and students, a veterans service dog program, food pantries, women’s domestic violence shelters and animal shelters.
