Invested in Our Community
The communities where we operate are also the communities where we live. We recognize the privilege we have as both neighbor and operator, and we approach this role with a focus on safety and stewardship. Warren Resources is committed to responsible operations while also working to strengthen the areas where we do business, and leaving a positive impact through economic and community support.
Strengthening Our Community
Our operations are able to generate economic development through job creation, capital investment, tax payments to municipalities and payments to our royalty and surface owners. These funds help facilitate infrastructure projects, education and safety services.
Another important role we’re committed to within the community is charitable support. We believe that being a responsible operator means giving back, and we’ve been able to do this in a number of ways.
John Mendez Pony Baseball Park
It was brought to Warren’s attention that Harbor Community Development was struggling financially and risked losing their baseball parks. Warren purchased the lots and now leases them back to John Mendez Pony Baseball Inc. for just one dollar a year. Warren also ensures that general maintenance on the fences, backstops, lights and the snack bar are performed so that the property is ready for the opening day of the baseball season. John Mendez Baseball Park programs focus on not only teamwork, but sportsmanship and community service.
Wilmington Community Garden
Warren Resources purchased a city plot and donated it to be used as a community garden. Currently SBCC Thrive LA has use of the plot through 2025. SBCC’s mission is to empower individuals, families, and communities by building community networks that build social capital to drive neighborhood change. The Wilmington Community Garden has been introducing residents, children, and families to green and environmentally conscious eating and gardening since 2012. The 5,200 square foot space serves as an outdoor classroom and information hub, with nearly 700 square feet of planting space.
Drum Barracks Park
Warren Resources was honored to donate two parcels of land to the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. The park is a short walk from the homes of many residents and provides a 17,000 square foot space to relax and enjoy each other’s company. The park’s unique displays are intertwined throughout the park with a children’s playground and grass area.
