We raised $23,000 on September 15th!⛽
On September 15th, Mid Island Co-op members and customers came out to fuel up and help a wonderful community charity — Wheels for Wellness.
Mid Island Co-op donated $0.10 from every litre of fuel sold for an entire day resulting in $23,000!
Local charity Wheels for Wellness provides service to patients across Vancouver Island who require transportation to medical appointments, ensuring a safe, friendly and on-time service from door to door. Wheels for Wellness averages 25,000 rides each year. This year, they are upgrading all their current vehicles to adhere to COVID protocols with plexiglass shields to ensure the safety of all patients.
Last year, Fuel Good Day raised more than $600,000 for over 180 local organizations and causes across Western Canada – all in a single day. More than 400 Co-op Gas Bars throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and northwest Ontario participated.
From corner to corner and points between, the Co-operative Retailing System truly got on board for Fuel Good Day. This year, make sure to visit any Mid Island Co-op Gas Bar on Sept. 15th to be part of this special initiative and fuel good!!
