The annual 'Everyone's Gotta Eat' food drive wraps up at the end May. The food drive helps fill the shelves of local food pantries for the summer months. Non-perishable food items for people and pets are being collected at all nine Shell Federal Credit Union locations. Stop by any Shell FCU location today to make a donation.
The FCU Team partners with local elementary schools for this annual event. Students are given a lunch sack to decorate with their family and return to their school with a food drive donation. Assisting with the food drive not only helps others, but teaches students social responsibility. The FCU Team works with nine elementary schools and donates to 18 food pantries and animal shelters.
Committed to its communities, Shell Federal Credit Union has improved the lives of thousands through service excellence, community outreach and lasting financial solutions for all stages in life since 1937. Anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Harris County can bank with Shell FCU. For more information, visit www.shellfcu.org.

Deer Park is drying out as most of the rainfall from the Memorial Day deluge is draining. More rains are expected Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Robert Hemminger, the city's emergency management director, said 9.2 inches of rain was reported overnight at the Water Treatment Plant on X Street. The Harris County Flood Warning System reported between 6.5 and 8 inches of rain fell around Deer Park late Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
Storms cut a path of destruction from the Texas Hill Country down to the Houston area, flooding rivers, creeks and bayous. Three fatalities have been reported in the aftermath of the Houston flooding.
For the 2015-16 edition of the annual Deer Park Chamber Resource Guide, the Chamber is asking for everyone who lives, works, plays and shops in Deer Park to take a selfie. Selfies will be selected and compiled into the resource guide, a directory that is distributed to new and current residents and businesses throughout the city. Groups, organizations, businesses, teams, clubs and individuals are encouraged to participate.
The resource guide contains useful information including important numbers, attractions and annual events in the city, local government, schools and utility information and much more. The resource guide also contains a directory of businesses.
The magazine-style resource guide will be released this summer. The deadline to send selfies is June 15. For more information, contact the Chamber at 281-479-1559.
