Supplies for Students raises record-breaking $3,041.38
DEER PARK, TX (August 9, 2019) — The Furthering Community Unity (FCU) Team powered by Shell FCU completed their tenth annual Supplies for Students Fundraiser benefiting schools in nearby districts such as 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.
A special thank you to Member Auto Center, one of our most valued partners, for their kind donation to Supplies for Students. We would also like to thank Angie Gallo with Awesome Advertising for her generous donation of school supplies, including pens, pencils, folders and notebooks. We greatly appreciate their support during this fundraiser.
