The Cenex Tanks of Thanks program recognizes and rewards people’s good deeds with a gift card for use at a Cenex retail location, such as Farmers Union Oil Company in Baker.

   The program has recognized more than 16,000 people across the nation since 2012, and given away more than $450,000 in free fuel.

   “Sometimes even the smallest gestures can have a big impact on a community,” says Travis Mashak, Farmers Union Oil Company Manager. “The Tanks of Thanks program provides the Baker community with a simple way to thank the people who give back to those around them. As a local business, we are proud to offer a program that rewards the people who make our community a better place to live.”

   Every month 100 nominees are drawn at random to receive a gift card worth $50 at any Cenex retail location. Cenex retailers can also give away gift cards to reward individuals they see doing good in their local communities.

   Customers, friends and families are encouraged to visit tanksofthanks.com and nominate someone they know who deserves to be recognized for his or her contribution to the community.
