Shell people and their families are the driving force behind our long-standing relationship with United Way, in which employees, retirees and their families give generously of their time, talents, and money. Across Canada we match the dollars raised by employees and retirees.

In 2019, Shell contributed over $4.24 million to United Way chapters across the country.

United Way creates lasting change across Canada by building pillars for communities to stand on. With the support of partners like Shell, United Way engages and mobilizes communities to provide Canadians with food, shelter and jobs, to improve access to social and health-related services, and to help kid’s access education and development programs.

In 2017 Shell partnered with United Way’s Community Hubs programs, supporting Calgarian neighborhoods living in high levels of poverty and isolation, as an Innovator Circle Member.

In 2019, Shell employees have been actively engaged through Fuelling Kindness with United Way, volunteering over 248 hours in support of various Community Hubs initiatives, such as monthly volunteering at the Alex Community Food Centre, coordinating collection drives for the Genesis Centre and Soap n Suds Program, or preparing birthday kit bags for Community Hubs Partners.
