Hurricane Harvey affected the lives of millions of people in the Houston area but one of the things that will be remembered most is the strength of the people who came together to help one another.

To thank the many nominated Heroes of Houston, we are creating a unique ‘Wall of Heroes’ public display which will feature the selected nominees. So why not head down to Discovery Green from May 10th – 13th and see some of the many people who helped get Houston back on its feet.

From everyone at Shell, we extend our sincere appreciation to you and the many volunteers who joined the effort to support Houston after the hurricane.

Shell’s Heroes of Houston include:

  • Joy McCormack who helped the YMCA collect and distribute an estimated 70,000 pounds of donations
  • Michael Barton and his team sat Mormon Helping Hands who tirelessly cleared out people’s homes after the floodwater had gone.
  • Mark E. Steiner who organized and distributed mountains of donated baby supplies at the NRG Center.
  • Enrique and Julia Uresti who volunteered every day at a BakerRipley community center connecting people with disaster recovery services.
  • Tom Ashworth who volunteered 6 days a week at the Houston Food Bank even though his own home was flooded.
