MEF Chair Jack Funk: ‘Shell is a good neighbor’

Dear Editor:

The Martinez Education Foundation (MEF) would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Shell and its employees and to let the community know what a great asset they have been for schools in the Martinez Unified School District.

This year, our October Run-Walk event produced $88,000 in funds which will help provide our students with quality programs and services.  Shell donated over a third of that money directly, and supplied an equivalent amount in human services, and material support.

The funds raised by the Shell-MEF Run for Education allows MEF to continue investing in today’s children for the future of Martinez. As always, a tremendous amount of work went into the event and a sizable portion of that effort was provided by Shell and its employees.  Shell’s participation is integral to the success of the event, and we could not have done it without those financial and human resources.

We sincerely thank Shell and its staff for their contributions.

Jack Funk,
Shell-MEF Run Committee Chair
