Fueling up can be a pain, so why not do it on a day that will make you feel good.

The Moose Jaw Co-op Fuel Good Day is returning, where 10 cents per litre of fuel from Co-op Gas Bars in Moose Jaw and Avonlea will go to a non-profit organization.

Non-profits can apply to be the selected charity and showcase what kinds of projects they have coming up that would require extra funding. Last year, in total, $13,030 was raised.

Michaela Turner, Marketing and Community Relations Manager for Moose Jaw Co-op, says it is best to be specific about how your group would use the money.

"The details are important because we want to work with these groups to make it a success for them and to be a great community player and partner to all of the groups in our community," says Turner. 

She also says the Co-op has made it easier than ever for organizations to apply.

"It's on our website and its very standard steps on how to apply, putting all the information in there, telling us about the group and you can attach any documents or plans, it's very straightforward and simple." 

Turner says even if you have applied in the past and weren't successful, you should still apply, as you never know when it could be your year. "If we don't know about it we can't help." 

This year's Fuel Good Day is set for Sept. 20. 

MIX 103's Sharon Church sat down with Turner to get a look ahead at this year's Fuel Good Day.
