Imperial Oil’s “Esso United Way Day” takes place this Saturday
Calgary, Alberta – The fifth annual Esso United Way Day will take place on Saturday, September 15 at 500 Esso stations across Canada. The company will donate one cent for every litre of gasoline pumped, and one dollar from each car wash sold, to United Way organizations across the country.
“By simply filling up at your local Esso station this weekend, you’re helping the people in your community,” said Simon Smith, vice-president of fuels marketing, Imperial Oil. “At Esso, we recognize the importance of United Way in our community and we’re delighted to maintain our commitment to this organization from coast to coast. Last year’s one-day event raised more than $185,000 for United Way in Canada.”
Funds generated from the day will be used to support United Way agencies helping youth, families, the homeless and others in need.
