Tesoro Hawaii employees and law enforcement officers will be pumping gas and washing windshields Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at the Kapolei and Pearl City gas stations to help Special Olympics.

The extra service is a fundraiser of Fueling Dreams, the corporation’s supporting arm for Hawaii Special Olympics and its year-round sports training and competitions, such as the Holiday Classic in December (held at Pearl Harbor and other military sites).

The volunteers will be on duty from 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. both days in West Oahu and at other Tesoro stations here and on the Big Island. Customers are encouraged to donate to the cause.

“It’s a great feeling to know that we have literally been able to fuel the dreams of these great athletes,” said Tesoro Hawaii executive Eric Lee, “and hope that we’ll be able to continue to reach out to even more athletes, both children and adults who can benefit from Special Olympics Hawaii.” The company raised $88,000 last year.

Donors of $5 or more are eligible for a drawing for $500 fuel cards. For more information, call 943-8808.
