Tanks of Thanks® program rewards Hettinger resident for making a difference in the community

A local resident has received a special thank you for her contribution to the community. Carla Schneider of Hettinger, N.D., was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks®, a program that rewards people who do good deeds to help make their community just a little bit better.

The Tanks of Thanks program from Cenex®, the CHS energy brand, encourages people to nominate friends, family and neighbors for free fuel as a way to say thank you for doing good in the community. Each month, CHS and Cenex retaliers give more than $5,000 in free fuel through the Tanks of Thanks program. Schneider was nominated for always being helpful in the clerical office at the local church. This month, Schneider was selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card, redeemable at any Cenex location.

“There are people doing good things in every local community, and these acts of kindness do not go unnoticed or unappreciated,” explains Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “Congratulations to Carla Schneider, and thank you for your contribution to the community.”

According to Hussain, Tanks of Thanks is a multiyear program, so there is still plenty of time for others to nominate someone they know for free fuel. “Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness – big or small.”
