Support Local Kids at the Jacksons Food Stores Giving Pump Jacksons Operated Shell Stations Designate a Pump for Boys & Girls Clubs CharityAug 22, 2023
BOISE, Idaho (August 22, 2023) - Motorists who fill up at Shell USA (Shell) stations operated by Jacksons Food Stores (Jacksons) will have the option to support Boys & Girls Clubs charities in their local communities through September.
Every gallon pumped from the “Giving Pump,” a single pump wrapped in purple at each location, will result in a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs charity local to each store. There is no additional charge for customers who use the pump and the donation comes from a portion of the revenues the pump generates.
Shell developed the annual “The Giving Pump” campaign as part of its Force For Good initiative to drive positive change in local communities by giving back. More than 7,500 Shell stations across the U.S. are participating in this two-month Giving Pump initiative. Those looking to find a participating station can visit shell.us/givingpump.
Beneficiaries of the donations are chosen by Shell’s partners. In 2022, Jacksons and Jacksons Energy donated more than $129,000 to its chosen recipient, local Boys & Girls Clubs. Jacksons is continuing to support Boys & Girls Clubs in 2023.
The charities use the funds in a variety of helpful ways, such as by paying for any operating fees needed for teens to use club facilities.
“The wonderful (donations) from Jacksons provide our middle and high school youth free access to our Club every day after school, throughout the summer and during school breaks,” said Colleen Braga, Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County Executive Director. “By removing all fees to attend the Boys & Girls Club, Jackson’s is helping to ensure teens have a safe place to go, where they’ll find engaging programs like sports, art, technology and workforce development.”
Jacksons Food Stores President Cory Jackson said the Giving Pump was a vital way for consumers and businesses to align their values for the benefit of their communities.
“It is a core tenet of Jacksons Food Stores to support children,” he said. “Any campaign that empowers our customers to direct their spending toward bettering their communities for younger generations is a worthy one. We’re thrilled to continue our participation in this annual giving event.”
