ARCO Partnership


Goodwill Southern California and ARCO have partnered to Give Back to Our Communities

Tesoro, a leading U.S. refiner and marketer of petroleum products and owner of the ARCO® brand, is partnering with Goodwill Southern California (GSC) to further our mission of “Transforming Lives Through The Power Of Work.” Throughout our territory, spanning  Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties, there are more than 400 ARCO fueling stations.

ARCO will help GSC work towards our mission through a multi-year commitment that includes community fundraising events at ARCO fueling stations. Additionally, ARCO will launch a co-branded marketing campaign designed to generate positive awareness about our mission. GSC will display co-branded messaging at our retail locations and on some of our truck fleet.

“We’re proud to partner with Goodwill Southern California to help build brighter futures for people in need,” said Robert Bezner, Senior Director of Brand Management at Tesoro. “It’s good business to give back to the communities that we serve.”

“Goodwill is for everyone. Our broad and inclusive approach to outreach is inspired by our mission’s four cornerstones of empowering individuals, advancing businesses, enriching communities, and caring for the earth,” said Tom Shaw, Chief Operating Officer at Goodwill Southern California. “Our partnership with the ARCO brand will be grounded by principles that align perfectly with our mission.”
