The Petroleum Wives pride our self in our community contribution and charity work.
This year the APW have selected the
Ford Dream Builders
The legacy of Jim Burke and his spirit of generosity continues to be the driving force of the Foundation. Their mission is to help the youth of Kern County excel through grants, scholarships and civic projects developed through the Dream Builders student leadership program.
Each winter, the Jim Burke Education Foundation accepts 32 high achieving, high school juniors to participate in the Dream Builders program. Together, these 32 students become the foundation’s Student Board Members and participate in our leadership programs.

Thank you for your partnership with the Association of Petroleum Wives (APW) in raising funds to support our local community. After much consideration, it is with a heavy heart and concern for everyone facing challenges in our community that we announce the cancelation of the 18th Annual APW Sporting Clay Shoot 2020 which was scheduled to take place Friday April 17th at The Kern County Gun Club.
Through the guidance provided by the CDC, WHO, our national and local leaders, we feel the responsible course of action is to support social distancing, by eliminating the Clay Shoot this spring. Furthermore, we understand that due to current world conditions many companies and individuals may face uncertain financial times as well as health concerns.
Our prayer is that this health crisis passes quickly and that you and your families, along with our community and our country emerge healthy and strong. When we all join together, we can make great things happen.
Please join the Association of Petroleum Wives as we support our community through our prayers and love for one another. We thank you for your support and understanding.
