Supplies for Students
The Furthering Community Unity (FCU) Team powered by Shell FCU has kicked off its annual “Supplies for Students” drive through July that will benefit school districts surrounding Shell FCU branches. This year the FCU Team powered by Shell FCU will be helping students in Deer Park, Pasadena, La Porte, Pearland, Clear Creek, Humble and Houston Independent School Districts. In mid-August, the FCU team will head to local stores to purchase and deliver the much needed supplies.
Last year the FCU Team with the help the Shell FCU staff, members, communities and local businesses raised $1,883 during the “Supplies for Students” drive and this year the FCU Team hopes help even more students. Cash donations as well and school supplies from the named schools’ lists can be dropped off at any Shell FCU branch.
The FCU Team participates in and sponsors many events such as Habitat for Humanity, Baytown Special Rodeo, Boy’s & Girl’s Harbor, walks, blood drives, food drives, Pasadena Animal Shelter and many more. Since its inception in 2008, the FCU Team has raised $48,178 and donated 5482.5 hours. Visit www.govolunteertoday.org or call 713-844-0625 for information on the FCU Team powered by Shell FCU.
