Giving back to the community is the right thing to do, and Murphy USA has been an active partner with the communities we serve since the very beginning. From participation in the annual March of Dimes and United Way campaigns to local community giving events such as Relay for Life, we are happy to support others.
Murphy USA and United Way
Each fall, Murphy USA and our employees contribute to the United Way of Union County. Contact Katie Sandifer for more information.
Murphy USA and Relay for Life
We are proud of our involvement in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life – a national initiative that raises money for cancer research. The event is usually held over a 24-hour period on a public track with volunteers who run, jog, or walk to raise money per mile. Relay for Life events also feature games, music, family activities, survivor events, tributes, and more.
In 2011, Murphy USA raised more than $64,000 at the El Dorado Relay for Life event and garnered more than $189,000 including donations from Murphy Oil. Murphy USA was also the top Relay for Life fundraiser in Arkansas, beating out Walmart, Tyson Foods, and Dillards, and the seventh-highest per capita Relay for Life fundraiser in the U.S. For more information, contact Luanne Lampman.
Murphy USA Store Initiatives
Our Murphy USA stores also band together for various community causes — including Habitat for Humanity, local adoption of pets from animal shelters, and book drives to send books to developing countries.
