One-hundred-and-eighteen ARCO gas stations and ampm stores in San Diego and Imperial counties will be participating in the fundraising partnership event that runs through Nov. 10, according to a GISD statement.
Those who donate to the non-profit GISD when making their purchases at ARCO will help further the organization’s mission of “providing employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment,” according to a GISD statement.
“We recognize that ARCO had many choices when selecting a charitable partner,” said Toni Giffin, GISD executive vice president. “ARCO’s research deemed our organization as the one making the largest difference in our community. We are incredibly humbled by this finding and intend to use the resulting funds to improve the employability in San Diego.”
ARCO and ampm customers will also see community fundraising events at participating stations and stores during the partnership campaign, with product giveaways from companies such as Rock Star and Coca-Cola.
“We are proud to work with Goodwill San Diego and are excited to give back to the communities we serve,” said Robert Bezner, senior director of brand management for ARCO. “We believe the funds raised will supply GISD with additional resources to further their mission.”
