What is Fuel Good Day?
Fuel Good Day is celebrated at more than 400 Co-op Gas Bars throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and northwestern Ontario each year, with each local Co-op supporting a community organization or initiative.
Since 2017, Co-op has raised more than $3 million for more than 700 charitable and non-profit organizations. Locally, over the past four years, Mid Island Co-op has donated over $117,000 to our Fuel Good Day recipients.
A look back at last year:
Mid Island Co-op was proud to announce that 10 cents a litre sold on Fuel Good Day 2022 totaled an outstanding $25,467.42! An additional $16,875.19 was donated by Mid Island Co-op for a grand total donation of $42,342.61 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation! We also had 14 winners who filled up on Fuel Good Day and won their fuel purchase back, totaling $1,620!
Mid Island Co-op has once again chosen the Nanaimo & District Hospital foundation as the 2023 Fuel Good Day beneficiary.
More about Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation
The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation was founded to support Island Health facilities. Today, we are raising millions to support our region’s healthcare facilities by leading major fundraising campaigns for critical medical equipment, construction projects and programs that provide the best and highest level of healthcare to the residents in central and north Vancouver Island. Donors are the most important part of our work. Every donor needs to be treated with kindness, respect and dignity. Our donors help provide Island Health the highest quality healthcare services for everyone who needs them right here at home. Since inception, the Foundation has stewarded donations to support improved facilities and has assisted in the funding of leading edge medical equipment to ensure our healthcare professionals have the tools they need to do their jobs.
Ten cents from every liter of gas pumped on Fuel Good Day will directly support enhancing critical care for residents north of the Malahat by tripling capacity for critical care.
“Mid Island Co-op is pleased to partner with the NDHF again in a committed effort to elevate tertiary care treatment for central Vancouver Island, shared Mid Island Co-op CEO Ian Anderson “We are very proud to have supported the first stage of the recently opened ICU at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and now we get to support our community further with Phase 2 of the High Acuity Unit. This year our Salt Spring and Harewood locations will be hosting a BBQ fundraiser and we will be collecting donations across all our sites. The Mid Island Co-op leadership team will also be on location at various gas bars to help wash windows, connect with the community, and raise awareness about Fuel Good Day as one of our most impactful campaigns of the year.”
