Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Sales of coffee or a car wash at any participating Saskatchewan Shell or Turbo station on February 10, 2010 will benefit the Kinsmen Telemiracle, with Shell donating the total proceeds plus a match of up to $5,000 for the day’s total sales across the province.
The Telemiracle is a volunteer organization that provides medical equipment and access to the people of Saskatchewan.
“With support from Shell Canada, Shell retailers across Saskatchewan have raised more than $50,000 through our involvement with Telemiracle for the past eight years,” said Garth Hilts, operator of a station in Yorkton and coordinator for this year’s campaign.
This year, all Java Café coffee and cappuccino sales, as well as car wash sales on February 10 will be donated to the Telemiracle. Retailers have also been collecting donations through the sale of “helping hands” to customers since late January and hope to raise even more funds.
Shell retailers will present a donation cheque during the live Telemiracle telethon on March 7.
