BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Chevron is kicking off a month long friendly competition as they help alleviate hunger in Kern County.
Chevron's calling it their 'Oil Can Do It' competition.
They are competing with two other local energy companies in a collection of non-perishable foods for the Golden Empire Gleaners.
Their goal is to fill the truck donated by the family of the well-respected and late Chevron retiree and community volunteer Claude Fiddler.
The community is encouraged to drop-off canned goods to support these efforts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21. Donations can be dropped-off at the Chevron Energy Center - C Wing Building, located at 9705 Forum Way, between Camino Media and Ming Avenue, in Bakersfield.
