Fuel Good Day was back again this year.
On Sept. 15, Estevan’s co-op gas bars were holding the traditional fundraiser. For every litre of fuel purchased on that day at one of the Estevan’s co-op gas stations, the Federated Co-operatives Ltd. donated five cents and the Southern Plains Co-op donated another five cents to the Cornerstone Family Youth.
In Estevan fuel sales at the co-op gas stations generated $2,877.80 in donations to search and rescue group.
Identical events were happening at the co-op’s Estevan and Oxbow locations. Part of the proceeds from fuel sales in Estevan go to the Southeast Saskatchewan Search and Rescue (SESK SAR), and funds raised in Oxbow go to the Oxbow Emergency Support.
The Fuel Good Day in Carlyle raised a total of $1,654.50 that will help the local organization.
In Oxbow the total raised for the emergency support group was $806.50.
“It’s a good run. The litres were strong. They were up from our day-to-day litres were, so we had a good day for everybody,” said Carol McKay, who is the human resources manager for the co-op.
