Demonstrating its commitment to strengthen the communities where it operates, Shell Deer Park is providing $35,000 in funding to nine local non-profit organizations through its Community Grants program.

This is the fourth year for the Community Grants program, which launched in 2019 as part of Shell’s celebration of 90 years of operations in Deer Park. The selected recipients are located in Deer Park, Pasadena or La Porte.

From the large pool of applications received, a panel of community members with in-depth knowledge and experience selected the grant winners based on what programs would likely have the greatest benefit to the community. “It’s an honor to work with this panel and support these organizations for the important work they’re doing and to help see their efforts achieve a successful outcome,” said Jessica Blackmore, Corporate Relations Advisor at Shell Deer Park.
