Friedens Gets Help From Citgo

By Drupal - Posted on 20 May 2010

Friedens Community Ministries has been enrolled in the Citgo Fueling Good Program. Every year, Citgo distributes tens of thousands of dollars to charities by way of "free gas cards". Each charity that is selected by Citgo receives a $5,000 gas card. We need your help to be one of the recipients of this award.

This is a great opportunity for Friedens because we transport much of our food ourselves between our three pantries. Currently Friedens spends thousands of dollars annually on gas for our van. A card, which could be used for free gas purchases, would allow us to use the funds we are currently using for gas purchases, to be used for purchasing food for our pantries instead. If Friedens were a recipient of one of these gas cards, we could purchase 25,000 pounds of food with the money we save on gas, and that would feed 1,000 families at our pantries for a 3-5 day period of time.

You can help Friedens be a recipient of one of these cards by voting for us using this link. Voting begins October 17th.
