The Bradford Memorial Library got a boost to its fundraising efforts
The Bradford Memorial Library got a boost to its fundraising efforts last week thanks to a donation from Holly Frontier.
Holly Frontier, owner of Frontier El Dorado Refining LLC, made a significant contribution of $50,000 to help fund the library's $1.3 million renovation project.
This contribution, the largest received to date, is a key component toward financing the renovation project which is anticipated to be complete in 2015. The renovation is a combined public/private partnership that will make a number of external and internal improvements to the city library.
“On behalf of the library, we are delighted that HollyFrontier has elected to support this project, which affects the quality of life for all of our citizens," said Nancy Wagner, Library Board chair.
Skipp Kistler, vice president and refinery manager of the El Dorado facility stated that, “This project clearly fits with HollyFrontier’s goals of supporting our community and investing in El Dorado’s educational objectives for the long term. We are proud to support this effort.”
HollyFrontier Corporation, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, is an independent petroleum refiner and marketer that produces high value light products such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel and other specialty products. HollyFrontier operates five refineries including a 135,000 barrels per stream day ("bpsd") refinery located in El Dorado.
