CITGO Fueling Good Campaign Rewards Local Charities

HOUSTON -- CITGO Petroleum Corp. launched its 2010 Fueling Good campaign to recognize and reward charities and individuals making a difference in the lives of others, the company reported.

Charities, community groups and individuals can join Fueling Good, and submit their entries at for an opportunity to win up to $2,500 in CITGO gift cards, either for doing good in their local communities, or for recognizing local charities that are helping others.

"Fueling Good is more than just a promotion," Gustavo Velasquez, vice president supply and marketing with CITGO Petroleum, said in a released statement. "It has become a core philosophy that extends throughout the corporation and into our network of local marketers and retailers. It encourages everyone to make a positive impact in their local communities. We have seen time and time again how one person can make a huge difference in the lives of others. This is particularly evident when you consider the good works being done by CITGO marketers and retailers in their own neighborhoods. With the evolution of Fueling Good, we also provide a way for consumers to drive their own Fueling Good initiatives."

CITGO developed and launched Fueling Good last year and by the end of the promotion rewarded seven charities with a year's supply of gasoline. Winning charities included Bess the Book Bus in Orlando, Fla., a non-profit organization providing free books to kids; The Night Ministry in Chicago, providing medical screening and support to the homeless; and the Children's Volunteer Health Network, a team of volunteer dental professionals in northern Florida that provide free dental checkups to needy children, the company reported.

The 2010 Fueling Good campaign adds a "Get & Give" component which offers consumers a chance to win CITGO gift cards as they vote for charities that best illustrate "doing good."

Charities and community organizations are encouraged to join Fueling Good at and submit their story for a chance to win CITGO gift cards. While on the Web site, these organizations will have access to useful tools that will help them support and market their programs and engage with a broader audience. Charities can submit their stories through July 15.
