32nd Annual Cent-A-Gallon Day
Wednesday, November 21, 2012

The Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa are launching their 32nd annual Cent-A-Gallon Day for Camp Courageous Wednesday, November 21, 2012. One-cent out of every gallon of petroleum products sold on the day before Thanksgiving, by participating marketers, will go to Camp Courageous.

Camp Courageous is a year-round recreation and respite care facility for individuals with special needs.  Run on donations, over 6,000 individuals are served annually.

On this day, participating Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores will give thanks by contributing one-cent from every gallon of petroleum product sold to Camp Courageous.  “The day before Thanksgiving was picked 32-years ago,” according to Charlie Becker, the camp’s director, “because both Camp Courageous and the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores have felt we have an awful lot to be thankful for and it was the perfect time to give thanks for all our blessings.”  

Posters will be displayed in the windows of participating Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores to distinguish them as participants.  The Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa encourage everyone to join with their local petroleum marketer to give thanks this Thanksgiving, by helping Camp Courageous on the day before.
