NASHVILLE — Fleet One says it is proudly showing its American pride by offering the Operation Homefront fuel card to customers who are searching for a tangible way to support U.S. troops while saving money on their fuel expenses. When a driver fills up with the Operation Homefront fuel card, Fleet One will make a donation directly to the organization, up to $250,000 every year.

Operation Homefront CEO Jim Knotts says the collaboration with Fleet One sends a powerful message to our military personnel.

“Our troops know that the price of peace is paid by their entire military families. It means so much to them that great companies like Fleet One support their families while they’re in harm’s way,” Knotts says. “It lets them concentrate on the mission, knowing emergency and financial needs are being taken care of. And it lets them know how much support and gratitude they have back home.”

Fleet One Senior Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Michael Thompson says the innovative program is a precise fit in our company’s culture of corporate responsibility. “Fleet One is proud to be the first to market with this type of collaboration,” said Thompson. “Our company is excited to handle the administrative responsibilities of connecting patriotic Americans to a method for them to say, ‘Thank you!’ to our military.”

A nonprofit 501(c)(3), Operation Homefront leads more than 4,500 volunteers in two dozen chapters nationwide and has met more than 250,000 needs of military families. For more information, go to operationhomefront.net.
