WEYBURN, SK, Feb. 12 /CNW/ - On February 21, purchase a Java Café coffee
or car wash at any participating Saskatchewan Shell or Turbo station and Shell
will donate the proceeds - plus a match of up to $5,000 - to the Kinsmen
"With support from Shell Canada, Shell retailers across Saskatchewan have
raised more than $60,000 through our involvement with Telemiracle for the past
six years," says Andy Broccolo, manager of the Weyburn Shell station.
This year, all Java Café coffee and cappuccino as well as car wash sales
on February 21 will be donated to the Telemiracle. Retailers have also been
collecting donations since late January through the sale of "helping hands" to
customers who display their names on paper hand cut-outs at participating
"Shell believes in giving back to the communities where we operate, and
we are pleased to partner with our retailers to support such a wonderful
cause," says Connie Arran, Shell's prairie region district manager. "Our
retailers are small business people and donating proceeds from sales that day
is a significant contribution that directly benefits their communities."
Shell retailers will present a donation cheque during the live
Telemiracle telethon on March 1 and March 2.
