SHELL VOLUNTEERS OPEN RELIEF TENTS TO HELP FLOOD VICTIMS IN MISSOURI AND ILLINOIS

 ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Shell Oil Company employees, dealers and jobbers are busy this weekend preparing to open relief tents for flood victims in Illinois and Missouri. Shell volunteers will distribute essentials such as cleaning supplies, canned food, diapers and batteries beginning Sunday. All items distributed at the relief tents will be free to flood victims.
 An Illinois relief tent, located at Eckert's Orchard on Otterville Rd. in Grafton, Ill., will open Sunday, July 18, from noon until 6 p.m. and Monday, July 19, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Employee and contractor volunteers from Shell's Wood River Manufacturing Complex will staff the tent.
 A Missouri relief tent will be located in the parking lot of St. Charles West High School at Zumbuehl Rd. and Drosty in St. Charles. The tent will be open on Monday, July 19, from noon until 7 p.m. and again on Tuesday, July 20, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Shell dealers, jobbers and marketing employees from St. Louis will staff this tent.
 Funds for the relief goods were provided by donations from Shell service station dealers in the Greater St. Louis area, jobbers in Illinois and Missouri, and from contributions by Shell Oil Company. Shell dealers and jobbers donated a penny from every gallon of gasoline they sold July 12-15. St. Louis dealers and some Shell contractors and vendors raised approximately $10,000 toward the flood relief effort; Shell Oil Company will match that contribution. The donations from Shell jobbers in Missouri and Illinois are still being finalized. Shell Oil Company contributed $50,000 for flood relief on behalf of its employees, dealers and jobbers in Illinois and Missouri.
 On Monday, July 12, local Shell representatives presented the American Red Cross with a separate $100,000 contribution to assist with flood relief efforts in Illinois and Missouri.
