Premier Energy is gearing up for Independence Day with its annual Fueling Freedom event.
From noon to 5 p.m. on Friday, June 26, CountryMark will donate 50 cents for every gallon of fuel pumped and $1 for every gallon of lubricants sold at participating CountryMark fuel stations to local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. Also at each Fueling Freedom site, customers and guests will be invited to register to win a $150 gift card.
Premier Energy’s two Greensburg CountryMark fuel stations will be participating in this year’s event. The stations are located at 766 W. Main St. and 1001 N. Lincoln St. in Greensburg. Both locations are convenient for consumer vehicles, but the Main Street location is a better fit for large trucks.
Of the 33 CountryMark stations that participated in last year’s Fueling Freedom event, Premier Energy’s Greensburg Main Street fuel station led with 5,256 gallons pumped.
“We look forward to this event each year because it is our opportunity to give back to local National Guard soldiers and their families, as well as spend time with the communities we serve,” said Tina Hunter, Premier Energy Retail Fuel Manager.
CountryMark initiated the Fueling Freedom fundraiser seven years ago as a way to support military families. In 2014, CountryMark raised $48,000 for local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. A total of 39 CountryMark fuel stations have signed up to take part in Fueling Freedom 2015, a record number of stations for the event.
“Fueling Freedom is one of CountryMark’s favorite events of the year,” said CountryMark Vice President of Marketing Jon Lantz. “This is our opportunity to support our local National Guard troops and their families. We are grateful for what these soldiers do to protect our country. Working together with our communities to support their families is just a great experience for everyone involved.”
