BP has a strong commitment to being involved in the communities in which it operates. Over the years, BP has sponsored community events, funded special projects for Paulsboro's school and supported worthy organizations.

The Paulsboro, New Jersey School Board recognized BP for a $20,000 donation it made to local schools.
The Board distributed $5,000 each to the community's elementary, middle and high schools and $5,000 to the special education program.
Dr. Frank Scambia, the Superintendent of Schools, said the money would mainly go to new technology. “This contribution gives us an opportunity to do some things we otherwise couldn't do. It will be put to good use.”
Director of Special Services John Giovannitti said, “Our school principals are eying technology like smartboards and IPADs and new educational programs.”
BP is involved in Paulsboro, New Jersey where it is remediating a former fuel terminal site and supporting the community in its redevelopment.
Sasa Jazic, BP's Operations Project Manager for its Paulsboro site, said, “BP is committed to promoting the future of Paulsboro by supporting the redevelopment of our former terminal into a brand-new, state-of-the-art port facility. Donating to the local schools is one more important way we can support this community's future.”
Jazic noted that the BP recognition came shortly after the student of the month awards were presented. “It felt really good to see the faces of these bright kids who will directly benefit from BP's donation.”
