Sherwood Co-op and Co-op Refinery Complex’s Story

More than $250,000 has been donated to the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan over the past four years, courtesy of “Fuel Good Day”, a partnership between Sherwood Co-op and the Co-op Refinery Complex.

“Giving back to our community is paramount for Sherwood Co-op and the Co-op Refinery Complex. We are very proud of our donations to the Cancer Foundation because we know how much good the money does for people in our community,” said Troy Verboom, CEO of Sherwood Co-op.

Since 2019, Sherwood Co-op designates one day a year as “Fuel Good Day’. On this day, 20 cents from every litre of fuel sold at a Sherwood Co-op gas station is donated by Sherwood Co-op and the Co-op Refinery Complex to support cancer patients.

“We have people who show up on fumes because they know that every single litre that they can put into their vehicle is an extra 20 cents for the Cancer Foundation,” said Megan Dunn, Community Engagement Manager.

Funds raised through Fuel Good Day have supported various initiatives, including:
• the purchase of a $1.5 million 4D CT simulator, which was installed in the Allan Blair Cancer Centre in 2019,
• the renewal of the Regina Cancer Patient Lodge in 2023, and
• new internal radiation equipment to strengthen the Allan Blair Cancer Centre’s Provincial Prostate HDR Brachytherapy program.

And stay tuned this fall for ANOTHER Co-op Fuel Good Day in support of cancer patients in our community!
