Emmetsburg Resident Rewarded With Free Fuel From Cenex

By Staff | Jul 9, 2015

ST. PAUL, MN – Rick Brennan of Emmetsburg, Iowa, has received a special thank you for paying it forward in his community. Brennan was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks, a program that rewards people who go the extra mile for others.

Recently, Brennan received a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card, which is redeemable at any Cenex location, for organizing fundraising campaigns. The money he’s helped raise has supported numerous projects, including a new weight room in the high school and a community center in town that helps developing businesses. He also revived a flag football program and more than 100 kids participate.

The Tanks of Thanks program from CHS and Cenex retailers encourages people to nominate neighbors, family and friends for free fuel as a way to thank them for doing good deeds – both large and small. Each month, more than $5,000 in free fuel is given away through the Tanks of Thanks program.

“Tanks of Thanks does more than give away free fuel. It empowers people to continue doing good things for their communities,” explains Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “Our Cenex retailers are proud of the communities they serve and the people who make those communities so special.”

According to Hussain, nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness. “Congratulations to Rick Brennan, and thank you for your contributions to the community,” he says.
