Amy Fonzo of California Resources Corporation stated “In celebration of ‘Giving Tuesday’ and CRC’s one-year anniversary of operations, we are proud to support the City of Ventura with this contribution so we can help build the dream called ‘Kellogg Park’.  CRC values providing ample, affordable and reliable energy to Californians and being a valued neighbor in local communities by supporting projects like Kellogg Park. CRC’s employees live and work in Ventura and are commitment to improving the lives of people living on the Central Coast.”
