  • A local resident has received a special thank you for her contribution to the community. Jo Richardson of Dodge City was 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. Richardson was nominated for her years of dedication to improving the lives of the disabled in the community, including her adult daughter, who suffered a brain injury at the age of five. Recently, she was selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card redeemable at any Cenex location. “That's probably one of the most rewarding things I've ever done in my life because they accept you unconditionally and to see the smile on your face knowing you're working to make their life better is more then you could ever ask for,” Richardson said. “… It gives you a sense of value that you're doing something to help someone else and not focusing on yourself.” “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 Jo Richardson, and thank you for your contribution 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.” To make a nomination, visit TanksofThanks.com and briefly describe why someone deserves a Tank of Thanks.
