Doing Good Deeds In The Community Pays Off
Cenex will continue its far reaching ‘Tanks of Thanks’ program for a third year. To date, the program has awarded nearly $280,000 in free fuel to people doing good deeds for their communities, including those in South Dakota.
Don Engelke of Viborg, South Dakota was nominated for a Tanks of Thanks award for his commitment to his community. Engelke is one of hundreds of South Dakota that have been nominated for free fuel from the Tanks of Thanks program.
Engelke routinely uses his vehicle to drive the elderly and less fortunate community members to church and medical appointments.
Other South Dakotans like Mike and Jean Baumann of Sioux Falls were also nominated for donating time to collect food and deliver it to organizations that provide meals to those in need.
The Baumanns and more than 350 other South Dakotans were selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card redeemable at any Cenex retail location.
People can receive free fuel in two ways. The Cenex Tanks of Thanks program collects and shares nominations online and rewards 100 random nominees each month with a $50 gift card redeemable at any Cenex location. At a local level, South Dakota Cenex retailers also award Tanks of Thanks gifts to people they see making a difference in their hometowns.
There is no limit to the number of people you can nominate, and anyone can be nominated for any act of kindness big or small.
