How To Join
Volunteer opportunities are
available for SAAGH members, family and guests via Shell and the Shell Alumni
Association of Greater Houston. Retirees are encouraged to support and
participate in Shell sponsored volunteer projects throughout the year. We are
continuously working to support and enhance Shell sponsored volunteer events.
For 2018 we will strive to
increase that support and participation by continuing the progress made and
providing opportunities for Shell retirees and SAAGH members to contribute to
the community, education and environment.
Projects are identified early
in the year and added as the year progresses. So check this page, as well as the
Facebook Group, for periodic updates as more projects and details are added.
