Cenex, the CHS energy brand, has announced that it will continue the far-reaching Tanks of Thanks program for a third year. Since its launch in 2012, the program has collected and shared more than 10,000 inspiring stories of people who go above and beyond to make a difference in their communities.

To date, CHS and the Cenex Tanks of Thanks program have awarded $280,000 in free fuel to people doing good deeds in their communities. That is enough free fuel to make 90 consecutive circles around the world, pending the invention of a car that can drive across oceans.

Since the program began, thousands of people have visited tanksofthanks.com to share stories of kindhearted individuals who help others in their in communities by contributing to large projects, like organizing entire food shelves, as well as smaller acts, such as shoveling for an elderly neighbor. No matter how big or small, Cenex realizes these good deeds certainly do not go unnoticed, although they are not always recognized.

That’s why CHS created the Cenex Tanks of Thanks program, to recognize people who go out of their way to make their communities great place to live. The program collects and shares nominations online at tanksofthanks.com and rewards 100 random nominees each month with a $50 gift card redeemable at any Cenex location. At a local level, Cenex retailers also award Tanks of Thanks gifts to people they see making a difference in their hometowns. In total, CHS and Cenex retailers give more than $5,000 in free fuel each month to deserving people across the country.

“Each $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card is a simple token of appreciation for the people who make our communities just a little bit better. But the really special part of the program is the 'pay-it-forward' effect,” says Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “After receiving a Tanks of Thanks gift card, many people tell us that they feel inspired to share the stories of others who also deserve recognition. If each Tanks of Thanks nominee pays it forward, think of the positive influence that can have on every community.”

CHS and Cenex retailers are encouraging customers and community members to nominate friends, family and neighbors for the Tanks of Thanks program and a chance to receive free fuel in 2014.

“We hope the Tanks of Thanks program can inspire people to take a moment each day and notice the good deeds happening all around us,” says Hussain. “Everyone knows of at least one person in their life who deserves a thank you, and Tanks of Thanks is an easy way to show your appreciation.”
