JB DEWAR TO DONATE ONE CENT OF SALES TO MUST! CHARITIES DURING
ANNUAL SEPTEMBER FUEL FUNDRAISER
Raises $8,753 During September 2019 Fundraiser
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif (September 21, 2020)—JB Dewar will donate one cent for every gallon of fuel purchased during the month of September to must! charities in order to help those whose lives have been negatively impacted as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
JB Dewar has dubbed September its annual must! Month of Giving to contribute to the charities’ mission in bringing the community together to create sustainable health and hope.
2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic have presented monumental challenges for many. Countless community members rely on a steady paycheck to pay utility bills, purchase groceries, and pay rent. Many workers are furloughed, have hours cut, or were laid off because of the pandemic. These aren’t just nameless statistics – they are our friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
“The JB Dewar team is dedicated and committed to making a difference in the communities we serve and where our employees live,” said JB Dewar President Ken Dewar. “We are extremely proud to partner with must! charities and support their efforts.”
JB Dewar is encouraging all customers to top off their vehicles, storage tanks and equipment this September so they may top last year’s donation to must! To date, JB Dewar has donated more than $15,482 to must! charities. Since its founding in 2012, must! charities has raised and invested over $2.4M in a wide variety of philanthropic efforts that have delivered significant and meaningful change throughout the Central Coast.
JB Dewar is proud to partner with must! charities on this new COVID Community Response Project that will directly impact families and individuals in our community. This Assistance Fund will be managed in partnership with ECHO, who has 19 years of experience helping the most vulnerable in our region. Together, we are helping families pay their bills and rent, find them new job opportunities, and are working to keep them on track – and in their homes. Raised money goes directly to support the project and individuals and families in need.
JB Dewar is also challenging its loyal customers to match $1 for every gallon they purchase in the month of September (or any amount they are able to contribute to the program). Donations may be made directly to must! Charities at mustchartities.org.
