Helping Hand During COVID-19

Fundación Cozumel and SAC-TUN (Vulcan’s major operation in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico) are working together on the island of Cozumel to help feed families impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis. The partnership is providing food deliveries to families and supporting 10 community kitchens which serve more than 2,500 hot meals daily. Through the Punta Venado Maritime Terminal, which receives the cargo ferries that supply the island, our SAC-TUN team also provides services to support trade, tourism, and regional industry.

Virtual Education Rocks

When students can’t come to us, we go to them online. Abbey from our Western Division met with nearly 50 2nd graders from Ericson Elementary School. She put on her PPE and showed them how important rocks are in our daily lives. One of 235 similar partnerships across the country, our Carroll Canyon quarry in the San Diego area has partnered with Ericson for over 12 years.

When It Rains It Stores!

That’s McCook Reservoir Stage 1 on the right, holding 3.5 billion gallons. In partnership with @mwrd, we’re mining Stage 2, which will hold another 6.5 billion gallons. The reservoir, which is one of the country’s largest public works projects for pollution and flood control, again played a vital role when record-setting rains recently hit the Chicago area.
