Celebrating 15 years of bringing good energy to great families. Since 2002, Fuel the Care has helped bridge the distance between home and hospital by providing fuel gift cards to families travelling to receive medical care for a child.  Every time you visit Irving Oil, you’re helping to support the Fuel the Care program.

Thank you for helping make our Fuel the Care Day 2017 a great success! On October 3, our employee volunteers were at select Irving Oil gas stations to offer customers full service by pumping gas and washing windshields. It was our way of saying thank you for supporting programs like Fuel the Care.

Together, we can help give families in our community a lift when they need it most.
