Caltex, Brand Partners Bolster COVID-19 Fight with Front Liner Discounts, Donations


Caltex fuels, marketed by Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), continues its  support and appreciation to our front liners thru donations and fuel discounts  during this  ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Until May 15, 2020, medical front liners, uniformed personnel, local government unit (LGU) frontliners, and delivery partners are entitled to P 4.00 and P 2.00 per liter discount from their purchase of gasoline and diesel, respectively.

Caltex has also donated P 250,000 to the One Voice Pilipinas fund drive of its superstore partner, Landers. Under the program, every P 1,000 donation will secure a week’s worth of food to a family in need.

Caltex employees also pooled their resources together and gave P 170,000 to the Kaya Natin! foundation. Kaya Natin! aids its volunteers in ferrying hospital workers from various pick up and drop off points in Metro Manila.  This was in addition to the earlier donation made by the Caltex Makati Credit Cooperative to the foundation.

Two of Caltex’ branded marketers have also reached out to the front liners with their respective donation drives. Northern Star Energy Corp. handed over Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that include N95 face masks, surgical masks and hazmat suits to the Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center and the Ospital ng Santa Cruz in Zambales. They also extended help in 43 barangays in Ilocos Sur spearheaded by the retailer of Caltex Candon 3, by distributing live chickens and fresh milkfish to the residents.

William Tan Enterprise, Inc., on the other hand, donated 30 containers of 70 percent disinfectant ethyl alcohol to the front liners in Palawan which include various medical institutions, LGU, and uniformed personnel.

Chevron companies also made an earlier donation of almost P1 million to Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Inc., JAC Liner, Kaya Natin! Foundation, and Grab Philippines in support of the COVID-19 frontliners.

About 91 percent of Caltex stations remain operational amidst the ECQ implemented in certain areas nationwide. These stations adhere to the 1-meter physical distancing rule, and implement regular temperature checks and frequent cleaning of areas with high human touch points on top of the usual hygiene practices and standards.
