CITGO Petroleum Corp., Houston, is rewarding local heroes who do good work in their communities with its new FuelingGood program, which launched June 1.
The program will continue through the end of the year and will reward CITGO gift cards to the people who do the most good.
To be considered for the reward, local community heroes must submit their personal stories of how they support their communities to www.FuelingGood.com. Then five finalists will be selected from the entries and posted to the FuelingGood Web site.
Americas can vote each month on the cause and individual they think is doing the most good. The entry each month that receives the most votes from the American public will win a CITGO gift card valued at a year’s supply of fuel from CITGO.
Four other finalists will win $50 CITGO gift cards. The monthly promotion runs from June through November, with a “last chance” round of voting in December for all the remaining finalists of the previous six months.
Underlying the promotion is the ida that while the spirit of helping others is alive and well, many good deeds simply go unnoticed. Also, given the current economy, people might not be able to provide donations to their favorite charities, but through FuelingGood they can nominate their local heroes.
Just what constitutes a hero, you might ask. Within the 27 states of the CITGO gasoline network footprint, any act of good will, from an individual using their own time to help a local school team make it to the state finals, to someone helping an elderly neighbor with errands-and everything in between-is eligible.
