ATLANTA, GA. - Twenty customers who recently pulled up to pumps at a RaceTrac station on Clairmont Road in Atlanta were surprised with the gift of a full gas tank, thanks to Verizon’s “Fuel The Love” initiative and 11Alive’s “Atlanta & Company,” which aired the related segment during its Aug. 30 broadcast.

The feel-good story features “Atlanta & Company” host Christine Pullara interviewing happy and thankful drivers at the RaceTrac station.

Fuel The Love aligns with the #ACallForKindness campaign, for which Verizon has teamed up with dozens of other corporate partners to make the world a kinder place, one act at a time. In addition to Fueling The Love in Atlanta, Verizon has filled hearts and tanks in Dallas; Cincinnati; Tampa, Fla.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Las Vegas; Madison, Wisc.; Portland, Ore.; Phoenix; and other cities en route to surprising drivers at gas stations throughout the U.S. this summer.

“We're thrilled to Fuel The Love with kindness for the good people of Atlanta,” said Shawn Alexander, Consumer Vice President with Verizon’s Consumer Group. “It's just one way we can all choose to heed #ACallForKindness — whether it's at one of our stores, passing each other on the street, or texting or calling a loved one, just to inspire a smile.”

Verizon brings value at the pump – and beyond
