Kristen Shults began a social/volunteer program within Western Midstream in 2020, cleverly called “Wes is More”, but the project really took off the following year. As a member of the Community Betterment Taskforce Committee, Kristen is focused on nonprofits whose missions center around wellness and education like Montgomery County Food Bank.
Within the last two years, more than 140 Wes is More volunteers have put in over 630 hours at Montgomery County Food Bank, and Western Midstream has matched every hour with a donation, raising thousands of dollars for hunger relief.
Kristen shares it’s important to give back through volunteering to “help make our communities better.” She adds, “Volunteering is the heart of our culture.”
Western Midstream finished the year with over 60% of its employees having volunteered at nonprofit organizations like Montgomery County Food Bank!
