Fill up and 'fuel' good

Feel good when you fuel up.

As part of Fuel Good Day on 17 Sept., 10 cents from every litre of fuel sold at all Armstrong Regional Cooperative Gas Bars will be donated to local charities.

This includes all grades of gasoline and diesel fuel.

Each gas bar location will be supporting a different non-profit or charity with the Armstrong gas bar supporting the Pawprints Animal Rescue Foundation.

The Salmon Arm gas bar will support the Shuswap Children’s Association, and the Vernon gas bar will support Venture Training.

“Once again, Fuel Good Day is providing the opportunity for us to work together with our members and customers for the benefit of our community,” said Jason Keis, marketing and sales manager with the Armstrong Regional Co-op. “This is a great fundraiser that shows how small actions can have big impacts.”

Throughout Fuel Good Day, the Armstrong Co-op gas bars will have giveaways, member draws, a barbecue, music, visits from local mascots including the Armstrong Co-op’s Cooper & player visits from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, Vernon Vipers and North Okanagan Knights.

Since 2017, Co-op locations across Western Canada have donated nearly $1.2 million to local registered charities and non-profit organizations as part of Fuel Good Day.
