Fueling Freedom to raise money for local Military Families

Jun 04 2019


 

When you fill up at a participating CountryMark fuel station on Friday, June 21 between noon and 5pm, CountryMark and member owners will donate 50 cents for every gallon of fuel pumped to local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. Customers are also invited to register to win a $150 gift card. 


“Fueling Freedom is our opportunity to pay tribute to the service, sacrifice and patriotism of local National Guard troops and their families,” said Matt Smorch, CountryMark Vice President of Refining and Logistics. “We are proud to partner with CountryMark retail fuel stations throughout the state to give back to our military families and honor the sacrifice they make to serve and protect our country.”

Last year, CountryMark raised more than $62, 000 for local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. Many of the National Guard Family Readiness Groups use the funds to send packages to deployed local soldiers, host summer picnics for soldiers and their families, and after-school programs.

As a farmer-owned cooperative, CountryMark serves as a strong advocate and state leader in the marketing of renewable fuels including ethanol and biodiesel blends. Due to disproportionate economic hardship, CountryMark applied for an exemption under the Environmental Protection Agency's Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) for 2018 and has notified the EPA of its intent to sue because the EPA has not issued its determination within the timeframe required by law.
