Hixton Couple Receives Cenex's Tank of Thanks

(6/18/13) One local couple has received a special thank you for their contributions to the community.

Wally and Gloria Everson of Hixton, Wis., were selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks®, a program that rewards people who do good deeds to help make their community just a little bit better.

The Tanks of Thanks program from Cenex®, the CHS energy brand, encourages people to nominate friends, family and neighbors for free fuel as a way to say thank you for doing good in the community. Each month, 100 nominees are randomly selected to receive free fuel from the Tanks of Thanks program. Wally and Gloria Everson are always helping those within the community in need, whether it is providing child care, helping someone relocate, donating to nonprofit organizations or sharing homemade items or garden products. Earlier this month, the Eversons were selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card redeemable at any Cenex location.

"There are people doing good things in every local community, and these acts of kindness do not go unnoticed or unappreciated," explains Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. "Congratulations to Wally and Gloria Everson, and thank you for your contributions to the community."

According to Hussain, Tanks of Thanks is a multiyear program, so there is still plenty of time for others to nominate someone they know for free fuel. "Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness—big or small."
