Fifth year of Shell Deer Park Community Grants
Dec 22, 2023
Eight organizations across Deer Park, Pasadena, and La Porte receive funding for projects in 2023.
Shell Deer Park is donating $30,000 in funding to local non-profit organizations through its Community Grants program.
The Community Grants program was announced five years ago to celebrate Shell’s 90th anniversary in Deer Park. Since then, it has provided grants to recognize programs with the greatest potential to benefit the community. Organizations must fill out an application for review and a panel of individuals from Shell and community members evaluate and choose which grant applications they believe would have the greatest community impact.
Let’s meet the eight 2023 Community Grants recipients:
- A New Dawn Pet Adoption – Funding materials and labor costs for building renovations including new turf to be added for their adoptable dogs to run around and play (https://anewdawnpetadoption.org/)
- San Jacinto Museum & Battlefield Association – Commemorating the sacrifice of the Texans who have given their lives in armed conflicts by contributing to the Texas Memorial Illumination Event (https://www.sanjacinto-museum.org/)
