DEER PARK, Texas – The Furthering Community Unity (FCU) Team sponsored by Shell FCU has completed its 10th annual Supplies for Students Fundraiser benefiting schools in nearby districts, including Deer Park, Pasadena, Pearland, La Porte, Galena Park, Clear Creek, Humble and Klein.
In total, the FCU Team raised a record-breaking $3,041.38 with the help of the Shell FCU members, employees and the community. Fundraising efforts included a branch-wide bake sale, cake auction, employee raffle and Shell FCU member donations. School supply donations were also collected at all Shell FCU branches.
All funds raised will go towards purchasing school supplies for the upcoming school year. The schools receiving supplies partnered with the FCU Team back in April to collect canned food items for the “Everyone’s Gotta Eat” food drive benefitting nearby food banks and shelters.
Since 2008, the Shell FCU Team has raised more than $105,000 and donated over 9,500 hours.
