Company to donate portion of sales from special delivery truck
Beck Propane & Fuels, a subsidiary of Beck Suppliers in Fremont, has co-branded one of its propane delivery trucks with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. “For every gallon of propane delivered by this truck, Beck Propane & Fuels will donate one penny per gallon to the Make-A-Wish Foundation,” said Keith Zimmerman, Propane & Fuels Manager. “The donation will total in the thousands of dollars, with the amount increasing as the temperature drops.”
Supporting its communities is nothing new for this fourth generation, family-owned company. Beck Suppliers and the Beck family have always made giving back a core value.
“Over the past five years, Beck Suppliers has raised and donated over one million dollars for schools, youth sports, charities like Make-A-Wish and JDRF, and other organizations that support our communities and neighbors,” said Senior Vice President Dean Beck. “Our Make-A-Wish propane partnership expands on past work we have done with this wonderful organization. For instance, last year we sent a family of six from Sandusky to the Mall of America.”
“Working with Dean Beck and Beck Suppliers has been an honor,” said Cherie Chatreau-Grifo, Senior Development Officer for Make-A-Wish Foundation. “They have embraced the mission of Make-A-Wish year after year and by doing so have changed the lives of those we serve. Beck’s Make-A-Wish propane truck is so exciting and a great way to showcase our partnership in the area. The more funds we raise, the more wishes we can grant. The Becks and their team are making a difference with their support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.”
“Our father Bill always instilled the importance of giving back and being engaged in the community to help others,” explained Brian Beck, Senior Vice President of FriendShip Stores, the retail division of Beck Suppliers. “Whether that is through donations, sponsorships, or simple involvement in Rotary or other local organizations, the message was clear. The Beck Supplier family is very proud to be a responsible member of all the communities we serve.”
