KENDUSKEAG – Mainers are spending a lot of money heating their homes this winter but a few of them got a big surprise today.
They got their fuel tanks topped off for free.
R.H. Foster in Hampden made special deliveries to four of their customers in the area as part of the fuel your love campaign.
Robert Meek of Kenduskeag said it was a total surprise. “It helps quite a bit and right now we are quite strapped and it comes at a good time.” he stated.
R.H. Foster Office Manager Kami Gullikson said, “A lot of fuel companies are always viewed in a negatively and you don’t really love your fuel or hug your fuel but when it’s free you do. I think that’s one of the reasons we are kind of excited to do it.”
The love didn’t stop there.
Anyone who saw the “Fuel Your Love” truck out doing deliveries was encouraged to take a picture and post it to the R.H. Foster Facebook page. One randomly chosen poster will also get 100 gallons of oil or gasoline.
This is the second year of the fuel your love campaign.
