Giles Automotive will be selling gas this Thursday, April 16, 2020, for only 20 cents per gallon and money collected will be going to local charities.
Held Thursday, from 7a until 7p at Giles Automotive, 6137 Johnston Street. Enter between Giles Subaru and Southland Engine on Johnston Street.
Bob Giles, CEO of Giles Automotive on why he’s doing this:
“With unemployment soaring especially in Louisiana which has been hit harder by the Coronavirus than most states it is just our way of giving back to the community and helping very worthy causes at the same time. We have a 12,000 gallon tank, and we anticipate to sell out. The monies collected and 20 cent per gallon gas will help countless families in Acadiana. While we will donate all funds collected, customers can leave more as again all monies will be going to very worthy causes. We will also be providing refreshments to those in line and adhere to all social distancing standards.”
There will be a 10 gallon limit per vehicle.
Some of the causes that will receive the money include Dreams Come True of Louisiana, the Outreach Center Of Acadiana that helps homeless families, and Acadiana Animal Aid.
This is one of those ways that I love to see people #ComeTogetherWithoutGettingTogether. You can be getting something that you very likely need, for very little money and be helping out your community during this time of desperate need among so many. If you’re able, throw on your mask and come support this local cause.
