Cenex begins 'Tanks of Thanks'

ST. PAUL -- As a way to recognize and reward people who go above and beyond for their community, Cenex is launching Tanks of Thanks, a new program that gives free fuel to those who make their communities just a little bit better.

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 retail location.

Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness - big or small. Visit and briefly describe why someone deserves a Tank of Thanks. The site also shares other nominations and stories from communities across the country.

Each month, 12 nominees will be drawn at random to receive a Tanks of Thanks gift card worth $50.

In addition to the monthly drawing, each Cenex dealer or retailer can also give away Tanks of Thanks gift cards to reward individuals they see doing good in their local communities. By the end of 2012, it is anticipated that Tanks of Thanks will have recognized more than 2,500 people in small and rural communities across the country.
