Have you witnessed someone giving back to his or her community this summer? Maybe it was the Little League coach who volunteers his time. Or the family who mows their elderly neighbors’ lawns. Have someone in mind? Recognize their good deeds by nominating them for the Cenex® Tanks of Thanks® program.

Since its launch in 2012, the Cenex Tanks of Thanks program has collected and shared more than 12,000 inspiring stories of people who go above and beyond to make a difference in their communities.

To date, more than $280,000 in free fuel has been awarded to people doing good deeds for their communities. That is enough free fuel to travel around the world nearly 90 times, pending the invention of a car that can drive across oceans.

Since the program began, thousands of people have shared stories of kindhearted individuals who help others in their communities by contributing to large projects, like organizing entire food shelves, or smaller acts, such as shoveling snow for an elderly neighbor. No matter how big or small, Cenex retailers realize that although these good deeds certainly do not go unnoticed, they are not always recognized.

That’s why CHS created the Cenex Tanks of Thanks program, to recognize the people who go out of their way to make their communities great places to live. The program collects and shares nominations online and randomly rewards 100 nominees each month with a $50 gift card redeemable at any Cenex location. At a local level, Cenex retailers also award Tanks of Thanks gifts to people they see making a difference in their hometowns. In total, CHS and Cenex retailers give more than $5,000 in free fuel each month to deserving people across the country.

CHS and Cenex retailers are encouraging customers and community members to nominate friends, family and neighbors for the Tanks of Thanks program and a chance to receive free fuel in 2014.

To nominate someone for Tanks of Thanks, visit cenex.com/tanks-of-thanks and share his or her story of helping others. You can also read stories about those who are giving back and making a difference. 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.
