Local Citgo Partnering with Madison-Morgan Boys & Girls Club
Madison Citgo owner Mike Chawla was certain of one thing – that our children are the future and giving back to the next generation is key.
That motivated him and his entire family to partner with Madison-Morgan Boys & Girls Club for an eight week Fuel the Future campaign where Madison residents can pump gas at their community helping hands pump, which will give a portion of the proceeds directly to the Club.
The campaign kicked off April 9 at Citgo’s location off of interstate 20 with hotdogs, fellowship and community partners fueling up to fuel the future of the MMBGC.
Madison resident Eddie Mae come out to support during the launch of Fund the Future because “the kids are our future.”
“I came out to support the Madison-Morgan Boys & Girls Club because kids are important and their education is important,” Mae said. “When you doing something for our kids, it brings them to Kids a higher level.”
Karen Robertson, Senior Executive Club Director for MMBGC, was all smiles during the kickoff. Community partnerships like this are one of the “life-bloods” of how we continue to serve our youth, she shared.
“To see so many residents supporting our Club with their patronage at Citgo is so wonderful for our youth, who will benefit from this campaign,” Roberston said. “We cannot do the work we do without the support of each Morgan County resident rallying behind our youth.”
For Bob Mackey, CEO & President of Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central Georgia, this new partnership will be the beginning of a longtime fruitful relationship with Citgo, as “together we create great futures.”
“This partnership means so much to us and more importantly to our youth, who will benefit from the generosity of Citgo and the patrons of Morgan County,” he said. “Partnerships, like this, fuel our mission to reach as many children, especially those who need us the most, to become productive citizens who give back.”
