Sep. 18 /CSRwire/ - Shell Oil Company today announced a $5 million contribution to support relief efforts for those affected by the tragic incidents in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. The relief assistance includes $3 million to go to The September 11th Fund; $1 million will go to the Cantor Fitzgerald Foundation; and $1 million for The Survivors’ Fund.

Steve Miller, chairman, president and CEO of Shell in the US, said, "In the wake of these devastating events, our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected. The loss of life is appalling. Although America’s national security has been breached, our resilience and the resoluteness with which we are recovering from these horrible times is testimony to our indomitable spirit. All of our employees join together with the hope that these funds will help speed the recovery and relief efforts."

The September 11th Fund was created by the United Way of New York City and the New York Community Trust to aid victims and their families following Tuesday’s terrorist attacks.

The Cantor Fitzgerald Foundation is making resources available to help victims’ families. The Foundation was set up in memory of the approximately 750 Cantor Fitzgerald and TradeSpark employees who are missing in the 1 World Trade Center attack. Shell affiliate Coral Energy is an equity owner in TradeSpark, an energy commodity exchange.

The Survivors’ Fund, based in Washington, D.C., will focus on long-term needs of victims and their families.
