Hancock Petroleum supports Guiding program

Guides also benefit from recyclable donations.

MAIDSTONE — Maidstone Girl Guide units are sending out a huge thank you to Jason Hancock and Hancock Petroleum Ltd. for their donation of $500 to go toward programming and activities for our Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders. We are very grateful for the support of Hancock as well as other local businesses and individuals who are helping us get back on our feet after COVID shutdowns.

Maidstone members and parents had a fantastic evening of sorting and preparing bags of cans/bottles for their trip to SARCAN in Turtleford. They were such an enthusiastic group of helpers. Thanks to Hayley Yuill and Kristin Shantz for getting everyone organized, and to Gord Banks for arranging use of the facility and transportation as well as helping us year-round. Recyclables collected from May 30 to Nov. 1, 2022 realized an amazing $1,195. Maidstone Guiding units look forward to resuming their bottle drive in the spring, after having to cancel for three years.

You can find bottle and can donation bins at the Hancock Petro-Can cardlock facility north of Maidstone. Donations benefit local youth programs in the Maidstone community. Past recipients have been Maidstone Girl Guides, Grace Community Youth Group and Maidstone Gully Multiple 4-H Club. Hancock Petroleum appreciates each and every customer and resident who donate to this effort.
