HOUSTON, Aug. 4, 2023 — Driven by the success of its first two years, Shell Oil Products US (“Shell”) is proud to announce the return of The Giving Pump, benefiting nonprofits across the nation. Starting today and running through Sept. 30, a portion of the purchases made by consumers who use the designated pump at select Shell stations will support local children’s charities. For the third year, The Giving Pump can be found across 47 states as part of Shell’s Force For Good initiative to give back and drive positive change in local communities.
The Giving Pump will be specially marked with colorful signage at participating stations to inspire consumers to fuel up and support a range of children’s focused nonprofits, including children’s hospitals, schools, literacy programs, youth-based food pantries and more. Participating does not cost consumers anything extra. The number of Shell stations participating in this two-month initiative has grown to more than 7,500 across the US.

“We’ve had a tremendous response to The Giving Pump over the past two years and we are excited to continue to impact the organizations whose mission is to serve others,” said Renee Power, General Manager of Mobility Marketing North America at Shell. “We believe the third year of this campaign will have the same heartwarming response of customers supporting local and national charities through the simple act of filling up. We encourage everyone to pay it forward and choose The Giving Pump on their next pit stop to give back to the community-minded heroes who do the important work of helping those in need.”
The Giving Pump is supporting 532 local and national charities across the US, including Boys & Girls Clubs, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and more.
