(BEDFORD) - Knucklehead Bend Market & Eatery on Lincoln Avenue is gearing up for Independence Day with a Fueling Freedom event.

On Friday, June 26 between noon and 5 p.m. at participating CountryMark fuel stations, CountryMark will donate 50 cents for every gallon of fuel pumped and $1 for every gallon of lubricants sold to local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. Also at each Fueling Freedom site, customers and guests will be invited to register to win a $150 gift card. 

Super Oldies 105.5 WQRK will be broadcasting live from Noon till 2 p.m. then Z102 102.5 WPHZ will take over from 2 p.m. till 4 p.m.

"Fueling Freedom is one of CountryMark's favorite events of the year," said CountryMark Vice President of Marketing Jon Lantz. "This is our opportunity to support our local National Guard troops and their families. We are grateful for what these soldiers do to protect our country. Working together with our communities to support their families is just a great experience for everyone involved."

The CountryMark system has been hosting Fueling Freedom events for the past seven years as a way to support military families. In 2014, CountryMark raised $48,000 for local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. Many of the Family Readiness Groups use these funds to host summer picnics and Christmas parties for military families, provide after-school care programs for the children of soldiers, as well as send packages to deployed local soldiers.

"We encourage everyone to come to a Fueling Freedom station and fill up on June 26," said Lantz. "By filling up personal vehicles and/or fleet vehicles, you are showing your support for local military families. While you are at our stations, you can also shake hands with local soldiers who are volunteering their time to be with community. It's a great chance for so many of us to say 'thank you' to soldiers and their families."
