Responding to Communities Across the US

Shell Oil Company has been and will continue to contribute to COVID 19 relief efforts across the country and especially in communities closest to our employees and operations. Overall, to date, Shell in the US has contributed more than $3 million to respond to the pandemic in cash contributions, employee match programs, additional assistance to food banks, support for mental health service, front-line worker assistance and in-kind donations of personal protective equipment (PPE), medical supplies, meals, and fuel for COVID-19 related efforts.

Shell US is focused on doing our part by partnering with Feeding America® and Mental Health America® 

The COVID-19 pandemic has spread through the world, changing the lives of Americans, and creating greater demands on health care and front-line workers, first responders, food banks and increased stress for men, women and children than ever before. Shell US is focused on doing our part to aid in the response and will continue to contribute to COVID 19 relief efforts across the country and especially in communities closest to our employees and operations.

US operations must continue to provide critical support to communities

We recognize that Shell’s US operations must continue to provide critical support to communities, from consumers and first responders, who rely on Shell fuel, to the makers of medical devices and cleaning supplies who rely on petrochemical supply from Shell manufacturing sites. We are taking action to ensure those supply chains remain strong throughout this disruptive period.
