For months now, participating Shell retail sites across Canada have been providing free food and beverages to healthcare professionals and commercial drivers.

As our Frontline Heroes Program concludes on July 31, 2020, we wanted to take a moment to recognize that none of this could have been possible without our Frontline Heroes who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to keep Canadians moving.

You may have seen them cleaning pump handles and inside our convenience stores sanitizing high-touch areas. What isn’t always visible is the incredible work they have been doing to support their communities.

Please join us in celebrating these retail teams!
