BANQUETS IN THE BAKKEN
The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) will host banquets in Dickinson and Williston this week, helping raise cash to put toward conservation and habitat in western North Dakota. These banquets are critical in helping fund wildlife and habitat projects. Industry has partnered with MDF on several occasions to provide matching funds. Get involved today to help them move forward in their conservation efforts.

INDUSTRY DONATIONS AID EDUCATION, WORKFORCE TRAINING, LAW ENFORCEMENT AND CONSERVATION
Industry has donated more than $300,000 in the last two months, helping local organizations with causes that assist law enforcement, education and training, conservation, and more. ConocoPhillips gave more than $242,000 to 12 different organizations, including $100,000 for the North Dakota Natural Resources Trust, while JMAC Resources has been working to raise money to outfit a McKenzie County Emergency Response Vehicle with the Track N’ Go System.
Hess Corporation is turning play time into learning time by offering STEM learning kits to go along with its annual Toy Truck, while Halliburton donated big toys – or tools – to Williston State College to help with training.
Finally, Whiting Oil & Gas employees once again showed they were willing to give a little piece of their hearts to those in need by bringing out the most volunteers for the Battle of the Bakken Blood Drive in February. Forty-one Whiting employees donated during the annual blood drive to secure $1,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation. The drive brought out more than 226 total industry volunteers.
