Coon Rapids man’s good deeds earn him free fuel from Cenex

John Reshetar of Coon Rapids was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks, a 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.

Reshetar donates his time to deliver meals to people with chronic diseases through a program called Open Arms Minnesota.

Earlier this month, Reshetar 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 Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager.

“Congratulations to John Reshetar and thank you for your contribution to the community.”

According to Hussain, Tanks of Thanks is a multiyear 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,” he said.

To make a nomination, visit and briefly describe why someone deserves a Tank of Thanks. In 2012, Tanks of Thanks recognized more than 2,500 people.

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