HOUSTON — Shell is bringing back the Giving Pump initiative, benefiting non-profits. Running through Oct. 31, 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 second year, the Giving Pump can be found across 48 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 at participating stations with colorful signage 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. The number of Shell stations has more than doubled from last year with more than 6,500 Shell locations across the United States participating in this three-month Giving Pump initiative.
“We are thrilled to bring back the Giving Pump to make an even bigger impact this year and give customers the chance to support local charities across the country,” said Shannon Bryan, manager of brand and communications for Shell Retail U.S. “We encourage our customers to pay it forward at the pump and choose the Giving Pump on their next fillup or road trip pit stop to help us fuel the future of local communities.”
The Giving Pump is supporting 527 local charities, including Boys & Girls Clubs, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Make a Wish Foundation, Autism Speaks and more.
In 2021, Shell wholesalers and retailers donated more than $1.5 million, supporting more than 400 children’s charities through The Giving Pump. The designated pumps were used 7.2 million times and pumped 72 million gallons of gas.
Houston-based Shell Oil Products U.S. is an affiliate of Shell plc, a global group of energy and petrochemical companies with operations in more than 70 countries. In the United States, Shell operates in 50 states and employs more than 12,000 people.
