80 years local – Celebrating our past, preparing for your future

DEER PARK, TX (January 6, 2017) — Shell FCU is excited to be celebrating 80 Years Local. In celebration of this milestone and achievement, Shell FCU will host community gas giveaways and member events throughout the year. As an anniversary present Shell FCU will gift a 2017 Ford F-150 to one lucky winner. Every auto, signature, home equity or mortgage loan financed or refinanced with Shell FCU in 2017 is another chance to win the grand prize truck.

“We take pride in our roots and humble beginnings, as we honor those before us that had an American dream and a vision of what Shell FCU stands for and believes in – people helping people with family ties and values,” stated Jose Rodriguez, Shell FCU President/CEO.

The groundwork for chartering the credit union occurred on January 25, 1937 in the Shell Oil Refinery Clock House with 40 employees in attendance. A fee of $0.25 was set for each person present who wished to become a member. The first official meeting of the Shell Employees Credit Union, Charter No. 1941, was held on February 4, 1937. Currently anyone that lives, works, worships or attends school in Harris County be a Shell FCU member/owner by opening a savings account with a $5 deposit.

“Shell FCU provides relevant and superior options regardless of generation, cultural background, or technological knowledge. We are excited to celebrate our 80 year history and proud of the family values we still exemplify today. By creating chaos, we are preparing for the future to sustain us for the next 80 years. Shell FCU will be here to serve our communities, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren for generations to come,” emphasized Jose Rodriguez, Shell FCU President/CEO.
