Fuel Good Day

Join us September 20th as we Fuel Up to Fill Dreams!

Victoria (September 2, 2022) — Peninsula Co-op wants its members and customers to fill up and Fuel Good about it on Tuesday, September 20th.

As part of Fuel Good Day on Sept. 20, five cents from every litre of fuel sold at any of Peninsula Co-op’s 18 Gas Centres will be donated to Help Fill A Dream. This includes all grades of gasoline and diesel fuel.

“We are so grateful for Fuel Good Day and the support it brings to Island families. For 36 years, we have been making Dreams come true for children with life-threatening / critical conditions. This has only been possible with the continued support of our community and incredible partners like Peninsula Co-op. Dreams are powerful things as they represent hope. This Island, our home, inspires Dreams and together we can make them come true. Thank you to everyone who chooses to make Dreams come true by filling their tank on this special day,” said Craig Smith, Executive Director at Help Fill A Dream.

“Fuel Good Day is an easy way to help support Island kids with life-threatening illnesses, simply by filling up their tanks. It’s heartwarming to see the community’s commitment to support our Island kids, many driving on fumes in the days leading up to the event so they can squeeze in as many litres as possible! We encourage everyone to rally together on September 20th to fulfill kids dreams by filling their tanks”, says Lindsay Gaudette, Director of Marketing and Community Relations for Peninsula Co-op.

Keep an eye out for Help Fill A Dream staff and volunteers helping thank everyone for filling up on Fuel Good Day. To pay it forward, one lucky customer will win a 2-night staycation courtesy of Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke!
