Volunteers helping restore Sabine Pass Lighthouse

By Cyndi Sellers

Cheniere LNG has partnered with the Cameron Preservation Alliance to help restore the Sabine Pass Lighthouse.

On Monday and Tuesday, Sabine Pass LNG employees used their volunteer time off program days to work on a floating bridge to the lighthouse and removal of the interior column. The volunteers used their particular skill sets and their own tools and equipment on the job.

Cheniere employees also helped fill potholes in the lighthouse access road, making it easier for other workers to travel back and forth, and, along with Stine’s Lumber in Sulphur, donated lumber for the bridge and walkway.

“The lighthouse is in our backyard,” said Amy Miller, Local Government and Community Affairs Supervisor for Sabine Pass LNG. “It figuratively welcomes ships from all over the world to Cheniere and Southwest Louisiana. We want to be a part of bringing it back to life to provide its cultural and historical benefits to the community. So, besides supporting the effort financially, we wanted to provide a hands on impact through the volunteer program.”

Many of these employees are Johnson Bayou and Cameron Parish residents, who chose to use their one day of paid volunteer work to help protect the historical landmark.
