If you need to fill up in the coming weeks (and really, who won't?) consider swinging by New Canaan Mobil when you do, and help support a great cause while you get your gas.
The New Canaan Mobil is participating in a two-week optional program called "Fill Up For Kids: Fueling The future for kids with special needs," supporting The Genesis Fund and local hospitals that provide care for children with special needs.
"We're proud to support a program like this," said Maria Kean, part owner of the Mobil station. "We have a history of employing high school students with special needs through a program with the school and it's always necessary to give back to those who need it whenever possible."
In addition to donating between one- and five-cents-per-gallon sold to the organization during the length of the promotion -- Mobil's local hospital of choice is the Yale New Haven Hospital -- customers are also able to purchase small paper bears to hang up around the store for $1 or $5, with all proceeds going directly to charity.
