Ochre River youth drop-in centre to benefit from Fuel Good Day

Dauphin Consumer’s Co-op gas bars in Dauphin are once again preparing for Fuel Good Day.

On Sept. 20, the Bridge Youth Drop-In Centre in Ochre River will receive 10 cents from every litre of fuel sold at Dauphin Co-op Gas Bars.

This includes all grades of gasoline and diesel fuel.

The Bridge Youth Drop-in Centre has been providing local youth a place to go after school to learn new skills and gain experiences.

“The funds raised during Fuel Good Day will help with programming and building maintenance so we can better serve our youth and the Ochre River community,” said Keith DeVries, a volunteer at the centre.

A barbecue will also be held between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at both gas bar locations with all proceeds going to the centre. Pre-orders are welcome by contacting Donna Devries at 204-648-7952.

“Once again, Fuel Good Day is providing the opportunity for us to work together with our members and customers for the benefit of our community,” said Lorne Eiffert, general manager of Dauphin Co-op. “This is a great fund-raiser that shows how small actions can have big impacts.”

Since 2017, Co-op locations across Western Canada have donated more than $3 million to local registered charities and non-profit organizations as part of Fuel Good Day and Dauphin Co-op has donated more than $25,000 through this initiative.
