Co-op members and customers pumped thousands of dollars into North Okanagan charities Wednesday.
As part of its Fuel Good Day, 10 cents from every litre of gasoline and diesel purchased at all Armstrong Regional Co-op gas bars was donated to local organizations.
A total of $4,008 will be donated to the North Okanagan Youth & Family Services Society (NOYFSS), $2,135 will go to Boys and Girls Clubs of the Okanagan, and $5,151 will be donated to the Shuswap Volunteer Search & Rescue.
“The Armstrong Regional Co-op is proud to give back and get behind local initiatives that are working to address the needs of our community,” said Jason Keis, co-op marketing and sales manager.
“Thank you to our members and customers for the support you’ve shown during Co-op Fuel Good Day. Once again, it’s amazing to see what we can accomplish when we all work together.”
Fuel Good Day was celebrated at co-op gas bars throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario, with each co-op supporting a local community organization or initiative.
The total result from across Western Canada for 2022 will be released in early October and will be available online, along with a complete list of supported organizations.
