LAS VEGAS, Aug. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Luck struck at the gas pumps for 25 customers of the Snackers Convenience Store in Las Vegas recently, when they were surprised with a free tank of gas as part of Verizon’s “Fuel the Love” campaign. Las Vegas joins Madison, Portland, Phoenix, Indianapolis and Tampa as locations where Verizon, the network America relies on, has surprised and delighted people all in the name of kindness.
“We’re hoping to make the world a kinder place, one simple act at a time,” said Steven Keller, Consumer Vice President with Verizon’s Consumer Group. “Each retail employee at Verizon has a ‘Choose Kindness’ bracelet as a visual reminder of the impact we make on the world and we hope events like Fuel the Love help inspire others to do something kind as well.”
“It’s the simple things. It’s the open door. The how you doing? If you can’t do something for people, even a kind word that says ‘I see you and recognize your presence in the world’ goes a long way,” said one lucky customer at the pump.
While Verizon is helping people save money directly at the pump in these select locations, it’s also making sure people know the value that comes with being a Verizon customer each and every day. For instance:
- Those looking to switch can take advantage of the new Welcome Unlimited plan – our best unlimited price ever for unlimited talk, text, and data on Verizon’s 5G Nationwide network. Plus, switch the whole family. Keep your phones and get $960 for four lines. You can learn more at: verizon.com/plans
