United Cooperative Gives Away $50 Cenex Gift Cards

Date Posted: December 17, 2013

Beaver Dam—As a way to recognize and reward people who go above and beyond for their community, United Cooperative, based in Beaver Dam with locations throughout south-central and east-central Wisconsin, launched Tanks of Thanks in their Cenex convenience stores.

The program, initiated by Cenex® -- the CHS energy brand -- gives free fuel to those who make their communities just a little bit better.

“Many of our customers are doing good deeds in their local communities every day,” notes Darlene Peterson, manager of United Cooperative’s Kendall Cenex convenience store.

“A teenager who shovels driveways or goes grocery shopping for elderly neighbors, parents and leaders who coach youth sports, and volunteers who organize fundraising efforts – we want to recognize them for their generosity.”

The Tanks of Thanks program gives Cenex retailers, customers, and anyone else in the community a new way to say “thank you” to neighbors, friends, and family by recognizing their good deeds and nominating them for free fuel from their local Cenex convenience store.

United Cooperative’s Cenex Convenience stores each nominated citizens in their local communities to receive $50 Cenex gift cards for volunteering and doing good deeds.
