Fuel Good Day was an overwhelming success again in 2019, and the excitement continues! On Tuesday, November 19, South Country Co-op presented HALO Air Ambulance with a $15,000 cheque from the proceeds raised at all South Country Co-op Gas Bars.
On September 17, 5¢ per litre of fuel and $1 from every cup of Co-operative Coffee sold at our gas bars was raised to keep HALO Air Ambulance flying. The collective total raised on Fuel Good Day 2019 for charities across western Canada was $685,000, and since its start in 2017, almost $1.9 million has donated to about 450 local groups!
