Resident gets special thanks for good deeds

A Coon Rapids resident has received a special thank you for her contributions to the community.

Leslie Proefrock was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks™, a new program that rewards people who do good deeds to help make their community just a little bit better.

The Tanks of Thanks program from Cenex®, the CHS energy brand, encourages people to nominate friends, family and neighbors for free fuel as a way to say thank you for doing good in the community.

Each month, 100 nominees are randomly selected to receive free fuel from the Tanks of Thanks program.

Proefrock was nominated for taking care of the mail and garbage for two elderly neighbors.

Earlier this month, Proefrock was selected to receive a $50 Tanks of Thanks gift card redeemable at any Cenex location.

“There are people doing good things in every local community, and these acts of kindness do not go unnoticed or unappreciated,” said Ann Mann, CHS energy advertising and communications director.

“Congratulations to Leslie Proefrock and thank you for your contributions to the community.”

According to Mann, Tanks of Thanks is a multi-year program, so there is still plenty of time for others to nominate someone they know for free fuel.

“Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness – big or small,” Mann said.

To make a nomination, visit and briefly describe why someone deserves a Tank of Thanks.

By the end of 2012, it is anticipated that Tanks of Thanks will have recognized more than 2,500 people.

CHS Inc. is a leading global agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States.
