Jester’s Court Donates to Local Organizations
Jester’s Court stores, the convenience store operations supported by Breaux Petroleum, recently donated $3,775 in total to local organizations throughout the community as part of the Shell USA The Giving Pump initiative. For the third year, The Giving Pump ran across the U.S. as part of Shell’s Force For Good initiative to give back and drive positive change in local communities.
From August through September, a portion of the purchases made by consumers who used the designated pump at a Jester’s Court store across the Bayou Region were donated to a number of local organizations. The Giving Pump was specially marked with colorful purple signage to inspire consumers to fuel up and support the local charities.
The organizations supported by Jester’s Court included:
- Trojan Lancer Band
- St. Mary’s Nativity School
- Children’s Advocacy Center of Lafourche
- Trojan Athletic Association
- South Lafourche High School Project Graduation
- Pride of South Lafourche Marching Tarpon Band
More than 7,500 Shell stations across the U.S. signed up to give back during this two-month initiative. Since launching Force For Good, Shell has been highlighting the impact of fuel wholesalers in the communities in which they live and operate.
Jester’s Court is a chain of full-service convenience stores serving the Bayou Region. Jester’s Court has locations in Raceland, Mathews, Golden Meadow, Boutte and Thibodaux. The stores participate in The Giving Pump initiative each year as a way to give back and support local organizations in the communities where its stores are located.
“It’s very important to us to give back to the communities we serve and make an impact where our customers live,” said Bud Breaux, president of the family-owned operating companies of Jester’s Court stores. “We are proud to be able to support and give back to organizations across the Bayou Region with this year’s Giving Pump campaign.”
