One local resident has received a special thank you for her contribution to the community. Shirley Moore, California, was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks, a program that rewards people who do good deeds to help make their community just a little bit better. The Tanks of Thanks program from Cenex, the CHS energy brand, encourages people to nominate friends, family and neighbors for free fuel as a way to say thank you for doing good in the community. Each month, 100 nominees are randomly selected to receive free fuel from the Tanks of Thanks program. Moore was nominated for visiting her Alzheimers-stricken husband in a veteran’s home over an hour away twice a week. Moore brings treats for the staff and patients at the home, helps out with lunchtime and visits with the guests.
She tries to better the days of the patients and staff, who can appreciate her presence and know that she’s there, since her husband cannot. Earlier this month, Moore was selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card redeemable at any Cenex location.
“There are people doing good things in every local community, and these acts of kindness do not go unnoticed or unappreciated,” said Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “Congratulations to Shirley Moore, and thank you for your contribution to the community.”
According to Hussain, Tanks of Thanks is a multi-year program, so there is still plenty of time for others to nominate someone they know for free fuel. “Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness, big or small.”
