RICHLAND, Washington – Christensen, Inc. a leader in fuels, lubricants, and propane distribution across the Pacific Northwest, is proud to be a driving force behind “The Giving Pump.” Christensen has teamed up with more than 30 Shell station owners in the Puget Sound area in a commitment to support nonprofit organizations serving children and youth, including the Seattle Children’s Hospital, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Prosser High School.
“When I was approached about the opportunity through Christensen and Shell’s Giving Pump, I can’t describe how excited I was. Our club kids will directly benefit from this generosity via increased funding for STEM activities, art projects, and the ability to take our teens on field trips to surrounding colleges. These opportunities help young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. We couldn’t accomplish our mission without the support we receive.”” – Kim Pope, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbia Basin
The Giving Pump initiative kicked off on August 1 and runs through October 31, 2022. You can find specially marked pumps with purple signs, highlighting the various organizations being supported in our region.
“The wonderful thing about The Giving Pump is that it doesn’t cost consumers anything extra to support their community. When someone fills up at one of our partnering Shell stations, they’re supporting local business owners and local students. It’s a win-win!” – Justin Christensen, Christensen, Inc. Vice President of Fuels
