General Community Involvement
For Shell Polymers, believing in community means being an active part of the local infrastructure and supporting projects and activities that are important to its members. We have worked on multiple projects to show our commitment to the people in the community.
Our facility will support the local Beaver County economy, directly leading to 600 full-time jobs at the complex and employing an estimated 6,000 construction workers during the plant build. In addition to growing the economy and the job market we are demonstrating the benefits associated with having a Shell facility built in your region.
Maple Syrup Festival
The Maple Syrup Festival, put on by the Beaver County Conservation District, is attended by tens of thousands of people from around the state of Pennsylvania. Shell employees volunteered the entire opening day and helped stock and sell approximately $20,000 worth of maple syrup.
Potter Township is working towards creating a community park and environmental learning center. The challenge was remediating the structures after years of neglect. Several volunteers from Shell spent 4 hours cleaning and shoveling years’ worth of dirt, leaves, garbage, etc. to clear space for the future park.
We adopted 50 local children and collected gifts to help provide them with a memorable holiday experience. People from both the site and Houston took part. The local community appreciated the program very much.
Vanport Park cleanup created a lasting mark on the community, serving 1,400 residents. Volunteers from Shell laid mulch, had swing sets sand blasted and painted, bought new swings sets, and provided a handicap accessible industrial picnic table.
