INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dozens of customers who recently pulled up to pumps at a gleaming GetGo station on Crawfordsville Road in Indianapolis were surprised with the gift of a full gas tank, thanks to Verizon’s “Fuel The Love” initiative and FOX59’s “Indy Now,” which will air the feel-good segment during today’s 10 a.m. ET broadcast.
Fuel The Love aligns with the #ACallForKindness campaign, for which Verizon has teamed up with dozens of other corporate partners to make the world a kinder place, one act at a time. In addition to Fueling The Love in Indianapolis, Verizon has filled hearts and tanks in Phoenix, Ariz.; Portland, Ore.; Madison, Wis.; and other cities en route to surprising drivers at gas stations in at least 15 U.S. cities this summer.
“We’re excited our Fuel The Love campaign is offering a helping hand to the people of Indianapolis and throughout the country,” said Krista Bourne, COO, Verizon Consumer Group. “We hope it continues to show how we can all make each other’s lives a little bit kinder, especially as we refocus on the people and things we value most.”
The “Indy Now” segment features Kerrigan Arnold – the show’s executive lifestyle producer – as she interviews happy and thankful drivers at the GetGo station, just a few miles away from Verizon’s Indianapolis #ACallForKindness mural, which local artist Cooper painted on North Meridian Street last summer.
“FOX59 and CBS4 are committed to giving Hoosiers information that helps them know how to save money and protect their personal budgets during this tough economic time,” said WXIN-TV FOX59 and WTTV-TV CBS4 Vice President and General Manager Dominic Mancuso. “Events like this one provide a great opportunity to showcase positive news happening in the community, and Indy Now is the perfect place to tell that story.”
The event came together with help from GetGo, whose team seamlessly worked the pumps and registers to keep lines moving at the pumps and delight customers.
“We are excited that Verizon chose to partner with GetGo to host its recent event aligning with A Call for Kindness,” said Brandon Daniels, public relations manager for GetGo Café + Market. “We share Verizon’s compassionate spirit as we commit ourselves to treat our Team Members, Guests and all neighbors with kindness and dignity.”
