Gas prices may not be as low as we’d like, but next Tuesday, Lloyd Co-op gas bar patrons can feel good at the pumps with the return of Fuel Good Day.

Scheduled for Sept. 20, Fuel Good Day sees five cents from every litre of fuel sold at all four Lloyd Co-op gas bar locations being donated to local organizations, and just like years past, all funds raised next Tuesday will be donated to the Lloydminster public and Lloydminster Catholic School Division (LCSD) breakfast programs.

 “This marks our sixth anniversary of Fuel Good Day in Lloydminster and area, and together we’ve raised almost $40,000 for both city and rural school breakfast programs,” said Chase Scarf, VP of operations with Lloydminster and District Co-op. “Fuel Good Day is a stellar example of what co-operatives are all about: bringing the community together to make a positive impact in people’s lives. This year, we’re very excited to see the return of rural school bbq’s at all four Lloyd Co-op gas bars as part of Fuel Good Day.” 

 As a locally-owned co-operative retailer, Lloyd Co-op owns and operates retail gas bars at 18 Street Crossing, located on Highway 17 south, Ironwells gas bar on Highway 16 east, Hampton Square gas bar on Highway 16 West, and the newest gas bar, North Stop on Highway 17 north. 

All four sites are participating.

“Our schools are thankful to this community for seeing everyone can be part of the success of our children,” said LCSD director of education, Nigel McCarthy.

“In Lloydminster, Fuel Good Day is a success because of the people who live here, and their belief that every child is important to the future of our community. Thank you for lining up in support of our students on Sept. 20.” 

This year’s Fuel Good Day runs from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will include free coffee from 5:30 to 7:30 a.m., then again from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., limited edition Fuel Good Day donuts and cookie slices, plus a charity bbq hosted by rural schools (Lashburn, Neilburg, Kitscoty, and Marwayne) from 4 to 7 p.m. at each site.
