Fuel the Care

Through this program, we’re able to provide fuel gift cards to parents to help with the cost of travel between home and hospital for children requiring urgent medical care.

Because sometimes little things can make a big difference when a child is sick.

About the program

We know traveling to hospitals can be costly, and sometimes the right care for a sick child can be miles away. Getting to and from appointments can add to a family’s stress during an already difficult time.

Since 2002, the Fuel the Care program has been able to support over 50,000 families in communities throughout Atlantic Canada, New England and Quebec. With your help, and working with local hospitals, the Fuel the Care program has provided fuel cards to thousands of families, letting them get back to what’s important – taking care of their children.
