Shell Deer Park Leads Annual Toy Drive for Local Charities
Last December, Shell Deer Park coordinated their annual toy drive in hopes of making a child smile during the holiday season, an effort that started at the site more than 20 years ago. The 2015 annual toy drive was another success due to the participation of Shell Deer Park employees and families as well as the Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department.
Shell Deer Park’s Emergency Response team lead the effort and after weeks of collection and sorting, Shell and Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department volunteers were able to deliver two trailers of toys to the Boys and Girls Harbor, an orphanage in La Porte; Sarah’s House, a home for homeless women and children; and The Bridge over Troubled Waters in Pasadena, a home for battered women and children.
“I would like to extend a huge thank you to the site for the outpouring of support this year for the toy drive for the Boys and Girls Harbor, Sarah’s House, and The Bridge over Troubled Waters. With the continued support of the Deer Park Fire Department’s Gift of Christmas as well as the excellent response from our site as a whole, we were able to help provide the kiddos of these facilities with a little happiness through this holiday season,” said Shane Bridges, HSE Shift Field Representative.
