Matthew Fleeger and Gulf Coast Western Brings Smiles to Children Cancer Survivors

Matthew FleegerThe oil and gas industry in Dallas has grown substantially over the past several years. This is hopeful insight considering there were numerous industrywide obstacles in the preceding decades. Some of the industry growth and obstacles have been due to an increase of alternative energy choices; and changes in global consumer behavior. One oil and gas company that has prospered through the market’s adversity is Gulf Coast Western, led by Chief Executive Officer Matthew Fleeger. Although operating in the Gulf Coast of America, the company has plants throughout Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Colorado, and other states. In addition to leading his oil exploration and acquiring company, Matthew Fleeger is also a dedicated philanthropist.

The CEO recently teamed up with the Sadie Keller Foundation to provide holiday gifts to children cancer patients. Matthew Fleeger mentions in a recent article that he has a compassion for those dealing with terminal illnesses like cancer; and even more so when it involves children patients. Gulf Coast Western uses the company’s annual Christmas party as a way to bring smiles to children’s faces. Matthew is a survivor of cancer too and these charity events adds meaning to his remission as well. As part of the collaboration, Sadie’s Sleigh donated a truckload of gifts to 11 hospitals throughout the region of Texas; and also to facilities in five other states.

Chief Operations Officer for Gulf Coast said in a recent press release that its rewarding to help children who sometimes only get to see immediate family during the holidays. Due to the recent Covid pandemic, hospitals have implemented more strict visitation policies and operations. The pandemic also played a factor in the cancellation of other planned charity events like the annual Yellow Ball fundraiser. Like Fleeger, 13-year-old Sadie Keller wants to give back and see other children smile not only during the holidays, but everyday.
