29 November, 2014 - Jubail, Saudi Arabia: Volunteers from Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) started preparing for the winter season by participating in a winter clothes drive in Jubail. This drive aims to provide a selection of warm winter clothes to help needy families in the area stay warm during the relatively cold winter months.

Showing strong support for the initiative, approximately 60 volunteers from Sadara in collaboration with a team of volunteers from the Jubail Volunteering Club (JVC) helped pack large boxes of select winter clothing for families in the Jubail area.

The volunteers helped packed about 600 boxes of winter clothing and blankets this year, compared with 350 boxes last year, thus helping to make this year’s initiative the largest and most successful winter clothing drive ever to take place in the Jubail area. The boxes were loaded onto trucks and delivered to directly to charitable organizations and societies for onward distribution to the families most in need in the area.

Commenting on the volunteer initiative, Raed AlRabeh, VP of Industrial Relations at Sadara said, “We believe strongly in giving back to the community in which we live and work. Our volunteers, who come from all across the company, consistently show the strength of their commitment to this key tenet by eagerly and unwaveringly participating in events such as the Winter Clothes Drive. We look forward to working with our partners and friends in the Jubail area to continue to improve the overall quality of life for our neighbors.”

About Sadara:

Sadara is a joint venture developed by the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company. With a total investment of about $20 billion, Sadara is building a world scale chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province. Comprised of 26 world scale manufacturing units, the Sadara complex is the world’s largest to be built in a single phase and will be the first in the Middle East to use refinery liquids, such as naphtha, as feedstock. By using best-in-class technologies to crack refinery liquid feedstock, Sadara will enable many industries that either currently do not exist in Saudi Arabia or only exist through imports of raw materials. The adjacent PlasChem Park, a unique collaboration between Sadara and the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu, will create more value downstream, generating unprecedented investment, innovation, economic growth and thousands of jobs. Sadara is on track to deliver its first products in the second half of 2015, with the complex in full operation in 2016.
