South Carolina Credit Unions Offer Free Gas Fill-Ups

COLUMBIA, SC – More than two dozen South Carolina credit unions are joining together to offer free gas fill-ups throughout the state this week. The free gas will kick off the second year of the MADTAG program. The Credit Unions of South Carolina are using this campaign to highlight the good deeds in our local communities and salute those who are making a difference.

“MADTAG is all about finding ways to Make A Difference in the lives of others and our community” said Linda Weatherford, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for SPC Credit Union. “But we don’t want it to stop there, just like a game of tag, we want people to pass on the good deed to someone else” said Weatherford.

“Instead of just asking people what good deeds have been done for them, we wanted to lead by example by surprising drivers with a deal on gas” said Anne Shivers, CEO of Carolina Collegiate Federal Credit Union. “We hope the drivers who are the recipients of our good deeds this week will be energized to find a way to pass it on” said Shivers.

The Credit Unions of South Carolina have a place for MADTAG stories on their Facebook page. They’ll post submitted examples of good deeds they’ve received and thank those responsible.
