Fuel Good Day was a success as many locals set out to fill up at the Co-op in support of the Canadian Pediatric Stroke Support Association.
Barb Fornwald who is the Hardware Manager at the Agro Centre on Kensington, "My grandson who has suffered a stroke at just 1 year old, it affected his left arm and leg." Fornwald had a very personal reason to ask for the funding to go towards this great cause for the year.
Fornwald adds, "Brendan, is 11 years old now and he loves hockey, swimming, golfing, and being apart of 4H."
The Federated Co-op donated $.05 per litre sold at the Kensington C-Store and 4th Street C-Store. And then Southern Plains Co-op, will then match the amount, which means $.10 for every litre will go towards the Canadian Pediatric Stroke Support Association.
And to increase the amount, the staff banded together and held a breakfast and BBQ to raise additional funds.
They had the Bruins hockey team their all afternoon to help pump gas, and more than one city resident was excited to help cheer on the Bruins and wish them luck before their game that night.
