Chevron Serves Air Force Veteran On Flag Day Weekend

NEW ORLEANS – On Saturday, June 13, 2015, Rebuilding Together New Orleans (RTNO), Chevron employees and summer interns will serve an Air Force veteran by making his home brighter, safer and more energy-efficient.

         Larry Gueringer has owned his home at 2544 Lavender for nearly 20 years and has lived in the Gentilly neighborhood his entire life. His childhood home is just a few blocks away.

         After joining the Air Force in 1970 and traveling the world, Gueringer is now retired and has been struggling to make critical repairs after damage done in the aftermath of Katrina. “I am so grateful for the volunteers that will be helping me with my house,” Gueringer said. “I’ve been trying to do it by myself for so many years.”

         Chevron volunteers are hoping, with their help, Gueringer won’t have to worry about home repairs for years to come.

         “Chevron has been a committed partner of ours since 1988 and continues to be committed to assisting elderly homeowners in New Orleans,” said Jon Skvarka, Director of Rebuilding Together New Orleans. “Their leadership and employees understand the value of providing longtime homeowners with safe homes to benefit not only the individuals, but the overall health of New Orleans and its neighborhoods.”

         “As a long-time supporter of Rebuilding Together New Orleans, Chevron is pleased to be serving our veterans in this capacity,” said Sakari Morrison, general manager Chevron public affairs. “We are proud to share some of the same core values as the military: safety, diversity and teamwork. Our employees will be using all three as they work with Rebuilding Together to improve our community.”
