Gen7 Fuel Walpole gives back over $8,200 in donations

WALPOLE ISLAND, Ont., — The Gen7 Fuel outlet serving Walpole Island First Nation has given back more than $8,200 to the community in two donations.

First, Gen7 Fuel donated $5,373 to the BBK Breakfast with Santa event. Those funds came from T-shirt sales at the Gen7 convenience store there.

Walpole Island is also known as Bkejwanong Biizeziimag Kinomagziwaad or BBK.

The BBK Breakfast donation went for gifts for the children, food, gifts to staff, and the purchase of a PlayStation 5 to raffle off to raise funds for future events.

In addition, Gen7 Fuel Walpole Island donated $2,900 to the BKEJ youth council to support their new building project of a larger space to accommodate more than 20 youth members.

Gen7 Fuel is an indigenous owned and operated chain of service stations with convenience stores serving seven First Nation communities in all regions of Ontario.

The two donations are part of $150,000 in the past year that Gen7 has ploughed into communities served by its outlets. The Gen7 mission is to grow those communities as its business grows.

“Gen7 in our community is more than a service station. It’s a community resource,” said Oceana Doxtator, Walpole station manager.
