In December last year, Shell’s New Professionals of New Orleans (NPNO) Group volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House of New Orleans as a part of their “Away Day” event. The volunteers cleaned, baked cookies, and performed general maintenance tasks for the families who reside at the house. The event was a huge success for the Shell NPNO Group and most importantly, the families and children of the Ronald McDonald House appreciated the work accomplished by the volunteers. Shell NPNO participates in several philanthropic events throughout the greater New Orleans area. The Crescent City Café is another community involvement project for Shell NPNO. The group assists the café in raising money and serving breakfast to the homeless once a month.
