FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Lassus Bros. Oil on Friday presented a check for $10,000 to Associated Churches of Fort Wayne in support of that group's charitable efforts.
The convenience store and gas station company launched its effort on Nov. 4. It concluded last week, and the $10,000 donation represents money raised from the sale of winter gloves and hats for children along with certain breakfast items.
Along with the check, Lassus Bros. contributed winter warmth gear for distribution by Associated Churches at local schools.
This is the fourth year the company has conducted "Operation be a Blessing."
