HOUSTON, Aug. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Shell Oil Company (Shell) has launched "The Giving Pump" at stations across the U.S. as part of its Force For Good initiative to drive positive change in local communities by giving back. 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.
"The Giving Pump" at participating stations will be specially marked with colorful signage to inspire consumers to fuel up and support a range of children's focused nonprofits, including schools, literacy programs, hospitals, youth food pantries and more.

Since launching Force For Good, Shell has highlighted the impact Shell wholesalers have in the communities in which they operate in, going beyond fuel quality and loyalty.
