Southwest Saskatchewan communities have a chance to win $25,000 for local cause in Co-op contest
Every year, Co-ops hear a common cry from customers through social media messages, emails and handwritten letters — please put my hometown in your Fuel Up to Win contest.
This year, Co-op is giving all Western Canadians a chance to get their communities in the contest and win $25,000 for a local charitable organization.
From Nov. 1 to 21, anyone can share a hashtag with their hometown’s name across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, along with the hashtag #Fuelupmytown. The top 25 community names will be listed on the Fuel Up to Win game card in the 2019 contest. More importantly, the community with the most mentions will receive a $25,000 donation from Co-op to a local charity.
“Pioneer Co-op is so proud to be part of Southwest Saskatchewan,” said Stu Dyrland, General Manager of Pioneer Co-op. “This is a chance for all of us in Southwest Saskatchewan to show our community pride and give a local cause a real boost!”
This new contest was inspired by eightyear-old Devin Dreger, who realized that his hometown was not on the Fuel Up to Win game card last year. When he told his parents and an employee at his local Coop, they suggested that he do something about it.
“To the Company of Co-op,” wrote Dreger in a handwritten letter, “I saw there was no Oak Bank, Manitoba, for Fuel Up to Win. I was thinking you could put it in next year.”
