Sterling Oil is committed to working with their community and it continues over this holiday season as they donated to the Adopt-a-Family program through their membership with the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce. The Royal Oak Chamber partnered with Royal Oak Youth Assistance to make the holiday season brighter for two families.

The Royal Oak Youth Assistance program assists children and families reach new heights. They offer several key services to help including skill building, family education, mentor “plus” program, and counseling. As these families and children work on creating their new path, Royal Oak Youth Assistance wants to make sure their holidays are as great as they can be and started an adopt-a-family program.

Sterling’s VP of Operations Jason Eddleston is a board member of the Royal Oak Chamber and as part of that responsibility he wants to lead by example. That starts by participating in chamber events and philanthropic opportunities including the chambers two adopted families over the holiday. Members of the chamber could sign up to purchase a specific gift if they wanted or they could donate through PayPal or Venmo. Sterling’s donation was earmarked for art supplies and gifts that could be placed in stockings like gift cards, paint brushes, and drawing pencils.

They continue their community led initiative in making those around them better. They have worked with the city on a Piano on the Streets program and they work with the chamber to help them in any ways they see fit. They are always donating time and resources to the people that need it the most.

Sterling believes Private-Public Partnerships are essential for all municipalities. Not only do they allow for the voices and perspectives to be heard but to assist in the implementation of said recommendations and projects. The long-term nature of the private-public partnership energizes the company to create and improve the services and amenities offered to its local citizens but also for business owners to play a part in this effort.
