CITGO Launches Fueling Good Promotion
Jun 22, 2009
The promotion works like this. Local community heroes submit their personal stories of how they support their communities to www.FuelingGood.com. Five finalists will be selected from the entries and posted to the FuelingGood Web site. Then
Underlying the promotion is the notion that while the spirit of helping others is alive and well, many good deeds simply go unnoticed. Additionally, with today's economy, people might not be able to provide donations to their favorite charities, but through FuelingGood they can nominate their local heroes for the good work being done. And those nominations that receive the most votes from those visiting the site are further promoted and rewarded with CITGO gift cards. 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.
Helping those in need is one of the core values of CITGO, and the FuelingGood promotion is a way to put that value into practice. Each FuelingGood nomination can help to inspire people to join in the FuelingGood movement, thus providing hope to those that need it the most. All CITGO employees at the refineries, lubricants blending plants, terminals, and corporate office, as well as the employees and operators of the nearly 7,000 locally owned CITGO gasoline stations and fast lubes across the country, are dedicated to the spirit of Fueling Good. Furthermore, all of the CITGO programs that assist those in need, including FuelingGood, free heating oil and our 23-year support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, are aligned with the social development principles of the CITGO shareholder, Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., the national oil company of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and are further supported by the independent CITGO marketers and retailers in their local communities.
