From our families to yours, we wish you a very happy holidays and a wonderful New Year.
Giving Back this Holiday Season
In the spirit of giving back to our community this holiday season, the Valero Benicia Refinery recently donated $320,000 to children’s charities. This donation is part of the Refinery's annual Benefit for Children, which this year honored 21 local organizations with contributions.
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, BEF and all of us in our amazing school district, we thank Valero for their continued generosity and support - it is greatly appreciated!”

Charles F. Young, Ed.D.
Superintendent, Benicia Unified School District
