On September 15th, our members fuelled up to support the community!
Thanks to your support, Beausejour Co-op has donated a total of $5,200.00 to the Association for Community Living (Beausejour Branch), the Beausejour Kids Centre and the Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society as part of Fuel Good Day! During the day, 10 cents from every litre of fuel you purchased at Beausejour Co-op Gas Bars were donated to these organizations. In addition to that, we also donated $1 from every Co-operative Coffee and Big Cool slush drink purchased.
