S Carolina CUs Kick Off Week Of Gas Giveaways
FLORENCE, S.C. (3/6/13)--Cars began arriving at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday for the start of a week-long gas giveaway initiative sponsored by South Carolina credit unions.

On Tuesday, credit unions in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina gave $20 of free gas to the first 100 customers at the Breakers Food Mart in Florence. The gas giveaway is part of a Credit Unions of South Carolina program to spur others to do good deeds in the community.

The offer of free gas kicks off the second year of the Making a Difference campaign, referred to as MADTAG.

The campaign highlights the good deeds being done in the local community, and those who are making a difference.

One of the first vehicles in line stalled. The driver of the next car in line sacrificed his spot in line to give the stranger a jump start. "It really highlighted the whole theme of this event: That's showing the good deeds that happen every day in our community" said Robert Harris, CEO Health Facilities FCU, Florence, S.C.

The gas giveaways will continue throughout South Carolina this week, with an event scheduled in Charleston this morning and the Midlands on Thursday morning. Each event will offer the first 100 drivers in line a free fill-up with up to $20 worth of regular gasoline.
