Charity Begins at Shell

Will Bigham in today's Daily Bulletin reports that the Shell gas station at the corner of Towne Ave. and Foothill Blvd. is holding a fundraiser today for the city of Claremont's Family and Senior Emergency Funds Program.

For every gallon of gas sold today, the station will give the city 10 cents. Bigham writes:

Today's fundraiser marks the 14th consecutive year that the Shell station at the northeast corner of Foothill Boulevard and Towne Avenue has donated funds to the city.

The city's Family and Senior Emergency Funds program distributes money to families and seniors who are unable to pay rent or bills, or who cannot afford groceries.
