BAKERSFIELD, Calif. —

BAKERSFIELD – The Western States Petroleum Association (WSPA) announced earlier today that they will be partnering with Kern County Board of Supervisors Chair, Supervisor Leticia Perez to provide $10,000 worth of gift cards to workers assisting with the battle of the COVID-19 outbreak here in Kern County.

“This is an unprecedented time in our nation’s history. We are all being asked to learn how to cope with the new normal and do what we can to ease the affects of this disastrous public health crisis. Although most of the country is under ‘shelter in place’ orders, there are essential workers who are still reporting to duty every day to be on the front-lines of the battle with COVID-19. WSPA and I would like to take time to thank these brave men and women for their service to our community and provide them with gift cards as a token of gratitude for all that they are doing to keep us safe and secure” said Supervisor Perez.

This collective contribution of $10,000, comes from the members of WSPA and will go directly to support our critical healthcare industry workers at Kern Medical as well as provide resources to keep volunteers with Kern County Aging and Adult Services moving to deliver much needed food and supplies to our most vulnerable senior community.

“I would like to thank WSPA from the bottom of my heart for their very generous contribution to support our employees on the front-lines of this crisis. It is community partners like WSPA that make Kern County the wonderful place that it is. No matter what challenges may lie ahead of us, I am certain that Kern County can weather any storm, as long as we lift each other up and help our neighbors in need. When this crisis is over, I have no doubt that we will be stronger and more united than ever” Supervisor Perez added.
