Legacy Co-op pumps funds into local charities

It was another successful "Fuel Good Day" for Legacy Co-op. On September 15th, ten cents from every liter of fuel purchased at the West Broadway and Palliser Way C-Store locations in Yorkton; the Churchbridge Home & Agro Centre, the Theodore Gas Bar and Kamsack C-Store was donated to local charities. The recipients of this year’s proceeds are The Salvation Army Food Bank in Yorkton, the Churchbridge Curling Club and the Kamsack Outdoor Swimming Pool Project.

“Legacy Co-op chooses to support charities that help the communities they serve, something that is important to the company” says General Manager Bruce Thurston. A total of $6000.00 was raised, with each charity receiving a cheque for $2,000.

“We are happy to be able to continue to raise money and support our local community initiatives, especially with what is going on in the world today.” Says Petroleum Division Manager, Richard Burym. “We have been holding Fuel Good Day since 2017 and Legacy Co-op thanks everyone who stopped by for gas, enabling another successful opportunity to give back to our community.”
