Give "Tanks" to Your Community Do-Gooder
Feb 14, 2012
It seems to be the season for giving. Girl Scouts are trudging through snow packed sidewalks to sell cookies, school clubs are peddling magazine subscriptions and city halls are hosting dances for volunteer firefighters, new senior centers and some just to pay the heating bill.
In my small town, I’m seeing even more. Neighbors racing to scoop each other’s driveways. Dads spending entire weekends coaching youth basketball tournaments. The list goes on and on.
Cenex stations across the Midwest are recognizing those volunteers through their Tanks of Thanks program. Nominate your community do-gooder at TanksofThanks.com and they’ll be placed in a drawing for a $50 gas card. A dozen gift cards are given out each month.
In addition to the monthly drawing, each Cenex dealer or retailer can also give away gift cards to individuals they see doing good in their local communities. By the end of 2012, it is anticipated that Tanks of Thanks will have recognized more than 2,500 people in small and rural communities across the country.
That’s a lot of free trips to the gas pump.
