Marlborough – One Energy, Inc. of Marlborough, who owns local Zoom Mart stores, is pledging its support to the local MetroWest chapter of the Boys and Girls Clubs by embarking on a fundraising campaign that will raise $6,500 for the clubs.
The campaign has two parts. The first comes directly from sales at participating locations including the Sunoco /Zoom Mart, 146 Maple St., Marlborough and two in Framingham, Mobil Station/ Zoom Mart at 22 Waverly St. and the BP / Convenience Store at 1660 Worcester Road. In all three locations, one percent of all revenue (excluding tobacco, alcohol, lottery and fuel) will be contributed to the campaign.
Part two of the fundraising campaign gives every customer an opportunity to make a contribution of their own. One Energy will match every donation up to $100 per customer. Donations of any size, $1, $5, $10 or more will be welcomed.
Both facets of this campaign will continue, until the goal of $6,500 is met.
This cause is of great importance to Mark Diarbakerly, owner of One Energy, because as he shares, “I was raised by a single mom with six kids living well below the poverty line. Giving back to the children of our community is a core value and a privilege that my mom and family taught me at a very early age.”
Laura Terzigni, Director of Resource Development, Boys and Girls Clubs of MetroWest expressed her gratitude saying, “Mark and One Energy have been continuous supporters of the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest. We greatly appreciate this partnership and the opportunity for community members to show their support through this campaign. All funds raised through this campaign will directly support critical programming for our community’s youth in the new year.”
