We are pleased to partner with Phillips 66 for another successful Phillips 66 Summer Internship Program. Our 2012 intern Cameron Bryant, 17, of Compton, worked in our Gardena ReStore for eight weeks and even expressed interest in staying involved with us after his internship ends.
The ReStore is a social enterprise of Habitat for Humanity of Greater LA (HFH GLA), established as a self-sustaining funding source for our affiliate and to provide our local community with low-cost building and home improvement materials. The ReStore sells donated materials including new and gently used furniture, appliances, lumber, hardware, etc. August marks the eighth anniversary for our Gardena ReStore and the second anniversary of our Norwalk ReStore.
As an Intern, Cameron worked with our Donations Coordinator to document phone calls from donors, sort donation receipts, conduct customer surveys within the ReStore, analyze donor call volume and the origins of donated items throughout the greater Los Angeles area. He also helped unload trucks and stock shelves along with other ReStore volunteers. Cameron even found a TV for his bedroom at the ReStore! It has been a pleasure to have Cameron as a part of the team. His positive, can-do attitude has been a real asset. Cameron has been a reliable, hard worker; he consistently arrived on time and brought tasks to completion with little to no supervision.
Cameron’s mother has worked in Accounting at ConocoPhillips/Phillips 66 for 36 years and encouraged him to apply for the Summer Intern Program before starting his senior year of high school. He will attend Santa Monica College next fall and pursue a degree in Computer Engineering. Cameron hopes to transfer to UC Berkley to complete his Bachelor’s.
On behalf of HFH GLA and the families and children we service, thank you Phillips 66 for your support through the Summer Internship Program. We look forward to continuing our partnership next year and we wish Cameron the best and are grateful for his service and contribution here at HFH GLA.
