Gas Stations Give Discounted Gas for Nurses, Doctors, First Responders and More!
Oil and gas giant BP Amoco announced they will be providing some much-needed relief for those who are on the front lines of the pandemic COVID-19. Throughout the month of April, they are offering first responders, doctors, nurses and other hospital staff a discount of 50 cents off per gallon at their locations in the midst of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re honored to support the health workers and first responders who are on the frontline of keeping our communities safe,” Richard Harding, the senior vice president of marketing and sales for BP’s North America fuels business, said in a statement on Saturday to TheHill.com.
“We’re here to help keep them moving so they can continue their life-saving work,” he continued.
BP said in a release that the discount will be offered to “workers verified through ID.me, a digital identity verification system.”
The oil giant also said that AmPm stores, a convenience store brand owned by BP, will be offering emergency service workers and hospital staff that provide their “official ID in store” free coffee, fountain drinks, or hot dogs, starting Monday.
The corporation said the store chain will also be providing “discounted meal bundles to those in need” as part of the initiative.
These efforts come after many are bonding together to offer some relief to those who are literally working around the clock to fight the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
