Indianapolis, IN – Today at its Anderson Headquarters, Ricker Oil Company presented Habitat for Humanity of Madison County with a check for $5,000 from the BP Fueling Communities Program, a part of BP of North America.
The BP Fueling Communities Program allows local BP-branded marketers to support organizations that focus on health, education, youth, food and housing to spread goodwill among neighbors in need.
“We have been supportive of Habitat for Humanity since 1998 and as a family-owned business in Madison County, we have always had a passion for the work that this organization continues to do in our community,” said Founder Nancy Ricker.
To be nominated for the grant, a BP-branded marketer, such as Ricker’s, must submit a grant on behalf of a local organization.
“We feel strongly that BP’s giving is making an impact locally, and we wanted to nominate Habitat for Humanity not just because of the work they do in our community, but also nationally and worldwide,” said Ricker.
