A Sioux City man has been a Meals On Wheels volunteer for almost a decade. As you know, during that time gas prices have skyrocketed. But through it all he has never been reimbursed for his fuel. That is until now.
That man is Richard Akins and after all he's done for this community, he's getting a little something in return. Richard retired around eight years ago and since then he's volunteered for Meals On Wheels.
He delivers up to 100 meals every week and finds it very rewarding. Richard says, "I get to know the people and I get to know their pets. The people are receptive to it, they're thankful, because most of them are shut–ins and can't get out."
But that racks up the miles quickly – around 500 miles each month. And with all of that driving comes the gas bills. So Richard's friends entered him in the "Tanks of Thanks" program and he won a $50 gift card. Richard was ecstatic, saying, "I was quite excited, I didn't even know of the program until I received the letter with the gift card accompanying it."
The gift card will help Richard keep delivering meals - and smiles - this year.
And if you know someone who deserves a free tank of gas, you can also sign them up for the "Tanks of Thanks" program. It's run through Cenex gas stations and each month, 100 names are drawn from a nationwide pool of entries. A manager I spoke with says fifteen people in Sioux City have won since the program was introduced last year. The program is intended to recognize those, like Richard, who give back to the community.
