CountryMark's Fueling Freedom raises more than $55,000 for local military families

Jul 09 2024


CountryMark's Fueling Freedom events on June 30 raised over $55,000 to support local National Guard Solider and Family Readiness Groups (SFRG) and United Service Organizations (USO). Across Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio, 35 CountryMark-branded fueling stations participated in Fueling Freedom. For every gallon of fuel sold, CountryMark and local branded dealers agreed to donate 50 cents to organizations with a mission of supporting local military families.

During the 16th annual event, CountryMark employees and branded dealers joined volunteers from local National Guard SFRGs to pump locally refined, premium quality fuels for customers. In just five hours, customers purchased over 85,000 gallons of CountryMark fuels. Additionally, customers donated nearly $13,000 to support American troops and their families—this was on top of the 50 cents per gallon that CountryMark and its branded dealers provided.

 

Out of the 35 participating CountryMark stations, the CountryMark Premier Energy station in Brownstown, Indiana led station sales with 7,693 gallons of fuel sold during their Fueling Freedom event.

 

The second highest performing station was the CountryMark Keystone Cooperative station in Rensselaer, Indiana, with 5,265 gallons sold. Coming in a close third place was CountryMark’s Spartanville station in Waltonville, IL, with 5,201 gallons of fuel sold in just five hours.

 

The CountryMark Premier Energy station in Worthington, Indiana led stations in public donations with customers generously donating $2,000!

 

CountryMark branded dealers who participated in the Fueling Freedom events included: Ag Plus, AgBest, Keystone Cooperative, Herdrich Petroleum Company, Laughery Valley Co-op, Premier Companies, Superior Ag Resources and SynEnergy Partners. 

 

As a result of Fueling Freedom, United Service Organizations (USO) of Indiana and sixteen National Guard Soldier and Family Readiness Groups will receive 100 percent of the proceeds from this year's events. Donations from each participating Fueling Freedom site were given to the organization located closest to the participating station. 

 

Soldier and Family Readiness Groups help build National Guard unit morale, increase unit retention, and boost participation levels in family-related unit activities.

 

United Service Organizations offer programs and services that strengthen our military service members by keeping them connected to family, home, and country throughout their service. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to lift the spirits of military service members and their families.
