ST. PAUL, Minn., July 19, 2012 — One local resident has received a special thank you for her contributions to the community. Christine Engebrecht of Milan, Ill., was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks™, a new program that rewards people who do good deeds to help make their community just a little bit better.

The Tanks of Thanks program from Cenex®, the CHS energy brand, encourages people to nominate friends, family and neighbors for free fuel as a way to say thank you for doing good in the community. Each month, 100 nominees are randomly selected to receive free fuel from the Tanks of Thanks program. Engebrecht was nominated for being an active Meals on Wheels volunteer. She also directs her church’s youth choir. Earlier this month, Engebrecht was selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card redeemable at any Cenex location.

“There are people doing good things in every local community, and these acts of kindness do not go unnoticed or unappreciated,” explains Kayte Haaland, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “Congratulations to Christine Engebrecht, and thank you for your contribution to the community.”

According to Haaland, Tanks of Thanks is a multiyear program, so there is still plenty of time for others to nominate someone they know for free fuel.  “Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness – big or small.”
