Free Gas USA's Board Destroys 2008-09 Client Records
Unfunded Grant Applications Have A Date With The Shredder
On June 24, 2010, the Free Gas USA, Inc. board of directors held a special work session to destroy their 2008 and 2009 unfunded gasoline grant applications.
The destruction of grant records and work session were approved by unanimous vote at their June 18, 2010 board meeting.
"We are committed to maintain the confidentiality of our clients' records," said the Reverend William Stein, co-founder and president of the faith-based nonprofit organization. "The board determined that it was no longer necessary to store unfunded grant applications."
Over the past two years, the agency had compiled nearly 20,000 grant applications from all 50 states, seeking the coveted gasoline cards that range from $50 to $1200. Gas grants are awarded monthly based on need, circumstance and the availability of donations received from the general public.
Since its founding in 2008, during the height of the gasoline crisis, Free Gas USA has awarded grants to poverty-stricken Americans from Michigan to California.
