Bismarck, N.D. – The North Dakota Petroleum Council (NDPC) and its members are partnering with Toys for Tots and area food pantries to host the Third Annual Fuel Food and Fun Drive. The charitable drive, which starts today, will help collect toys and nonperishable food items for the holiday season.

“Our members and their employees continue to pool their time, money and other resources to make a positive impact in our communities,” said Tessa Sandstrom, communications director for the NDPC. “It is an honor and a privilege to be able to work with charities each year to help collect vital resources and toys and spread the spirit of giving and joy this holiday season.”

The drive continues to be a success, helping collect more than 5,000 pounds of food and more than 800 toys since its inauguration. Two companies that collect the most food items will also win $1,000 for the charities of their choice. The NDPC has given $6,000 to charities since starting its charitable campaigns, which include a winter clothing drive, the food and toy drive and a blood drive.

Companies may participate in the Fuel Food and Fun Drive by contacting Sandstrom at tsandstrom@ndoil.org. For more information and to see who is participating, visit www.northdakotaoilcan.com/FuelFoodandFun.

The Fuel Food and Fun Drive is the first joint event organized by the NDPC Community Outreach Committee, which was formed to work together to make a stronger positive impact in North Dakota communities.
