Our employees, retirees and their family members have participated in a variety of service projects supporting themes of education, the environment, social services, and culture/arts.
They have collected food for the hungry, provided gifts and holiday meals for at-risk children and their families, planted trees to enhance parks, held school supply drives, helped deliver meals to the elderly and homebound and helped former addicts, the homeless and victims of family violence get back on their feet.
Shell Deer Park employees helped establish the Deer Park Community Advisory Council. They also have held and continue to hold leadership positions in many community organizations, such as Local Emergency Planning Committees, Channel Industries Mutual Aid, volunteer fire departments, Deer Park Chamber of Commerce, East Harris County Manufacturers Association, Houston Regional Monitoring, Economic Alliance, Texas Chemical Council, and the Deer Park Educational Foundation.
Additionally, through the HERO (Helping Employees Reach Out) program, Shell supports employee and pensioner gifts to select nonprofit agencies and schools throughout the U.S., extending the reach of personal and corporate giving. By matching employee and pensioner gifts, the donor and company resources are leveraged for maximum community benefit. Shell Deer Park employees and retirees support many local community organizations through this program including Deer Park ISD, Boys & Girls Harbor, A New Dawn Adoption, and the Deer Park Prairie. In the fall 2015 campaign, the site logged $1.6 million in matching gifts toward organizations our Shell Deer Park employees are passionate about.
