The Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa announce their twenty-seventh Annual Cent-A-Gallon Day on Wednesday, November 26, 2008.  One-cent out of every gallon of petroleum product, sold on the day before Thanksgiving, by participating marketers, will go to Camp Courageous. 

Camp Courageous of Iowa is a year-round recreation and respite care facility for individuals with disabilities.  Run on donations, over 5,000 campers 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 to Camp Courageous.  “The day before Thanksgiving was picked 27-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.
