Giving Back to the Community Through Charitable Donations

At McPhail Fuel Company, we take pride in supporting the community we have been part of since 1883. After all, without a strong and thriving community, there would be no McPhail Fuel Company, so we are more than happy to give back to the people that have given us so much over the years.
Community focus is one of the key values of our company and one of the best ways to stand by these values is to give back to the local communities we serve throughout Northern California. We believe that we have a responsibility to help causes that are close to home because we are lucky enough to serve these loyal communities and know first-hand how much they deserve it.

One way that we like to give back to our local community is through charitable donations. Every dollar goes a long way. We know that our donations can truly make a difference to a range of local charities and community programs.

In doing so, we hope to do our part to help strengthen the bond and passion of these amazing communities that we serve, allowing us to flourish alongside one another for many years to come.
Check out some of the amazing charities and events that we proudly donate to:

West Marin Little League

Whenever we can give back to the children of our local communities, it fills us with a great sense of pride, which is why we donate to the West Marin Little League. Local sports programs such as these are the cornerstone of communities, bringing together children and families to celebrate their love for baseball.

Not only is it a fun filled time, but it helps to teach important lessons that kids can take with them throughout life. This program is entirely run by volunteers from local communities, with all funds being raised by the league itself.

Nicasio Fire Department

Serving the local communities in Nicasio has always been a pleasure for us, but what we do is nothing compared to the brave volunteers at the Nicasio Fire Department. Safety is one of the core values at the McPhail Fuel Company, which is why we are always looking to donate to charities that serve and protect their communities.

Since 1946,  the  Nicasio Fire Department has provided first response throughout the Nicasio area. They also provide prevention and preparedness programs alongside a range of other community educational programs. Considering all that they do for our local community, it’s only right that we give back to these brave men and women.

Redwood Empire Food Bank

There is no greater way to give back to the community than helping our neighbors, and donating to the Redwood Empire Food Bank is one of the best ways to help those that have fallen on hard times. Food banks are a vital source of food for many of the families in Northern California, which is why we donate to this important hunger relief Organization.

The Redwood Empire Food Bank serves around 82,000 people each month making it the largest hunger relief organization serving north coastal California, from Sonoma County to the Oregon border... Recipients include families, schools, the elderly and individuals We take great pride in supporting efforts to feed those who cannot afford to provide for themselves. RCU North Bay Fire Relief

Working directly in communities throughout Northern California, we have seen first-hand the devastating effects of the 2017 North Bay fires. Victims have had their lives forever changed by the horrific damage caused by the fires, with families and individuals losing homes and employment, while many local businesses were also lost.

Not only that, many survivors of the fires themselves require medical treatment and other forms of relief, showcasing just how important the RCU North Bay Fire Relief fund is. We hate to see our local communities suffer in any capacity, so donating to this cause made perfect sense.

These are just a few recent examples of the charities and causes we have donated to, with our current list of donations reaching 30. We look forward to donating to much more over the years, doing what we can to give back to the communities we serve.

Another way we like to give back to important causes is by sponsoring various local fundraisers. Again, these are causes that are close to home, so we feel a real sense of community pride by contributing to many great causes in Northern California.

Sponsored Events

San Geronimo Valley Lions Club’s Annual Crab Feed

The San Geronimo Valley Lions Club helps to give back to local community projects and charities in Woodacre, San Geronimo, Forest Knolls and Lagunitas. Each year, they host a special fundraiser called the Crab Feed to help raise money for the various causes they support.

To help in a unique McPhail Fuel Company way, we donate propane for this fundraiser. The attendees bid on this during a silent auction which helps to raise money for this important event. It’s a small gesture that goes a long way, just like all the hard work and dedication from the San Geronimo Valley Lions Club.

Nicasio School is found in the heart of Marin County, offering an exceptional learning environment for students in grades K-8.
