Cars line up for free gas fill-ups in the Pee Dee

Posted: Updated:
FLORENCE, SC -

(WBTW) - Credit unions from around the Pee Dee came together to offer free gas fill-ups Tuesday morning.

Cars began lining up before the 7:30 a.m. kickoff at the Breakers Food Mart on West Evans Street in Florence.

The first one hundred vehicles in line received $20 in free regular gas, courtesy of the Credit Unions of South Carolina.

According to a press release, the offer of free gas kicks off the second year of an ongoing campaign, referred to as MADTAG, by the Credit Unions of South Carolina to highlight the good deeds being done in our local community, and those who are making a difference. 

"Instead of just asking people what good deeds have been done for them, we wanted to lead by example by surprising drivers with free gas" said Linda Weatherford, Director of Marketing for SPC Credit Union also with offices based in Florence. "Hopefully the drivers who are the recipients of our good deed will be energized to find a way to pass it on" Weatherford said. 

The Credit Unions of South Carolina have launched a Facebook page, encouraging people to submit examples of good deeds that have been done for them, and who is responsible for them. For more information on the MADTAG initiative, visit www.madtag.org. Real time updates are also being provided via twitter @MADTAGSC.
