Kampus Korner in Ypsilanti to offer gas discounts and an optional prayer
If low gasoline prices along with some coffee and donuts and perhaps a prayer appeal to you, Kampus Korner gas station in Ypsilanti is the place to be on Saturday morning.
Members of the Cross and Resurrection Lutheran Church in Ypsilanti, which is located around the corner from the gas station at 819 N. Huron St., will be volunteering their time at the gas station from 9 a.m. to noon, manning the pumps, helping at the store, and providing prayers on request for what they're calling their first gas "buy-down.''
"Sometimes people just need an encouraging word, or a smile from a passerby, or maybe even the assistance of a stranger," said Paul Knickelbein, a church administrator. "We hope that through the gas buy-down we can be that encouragement to our community."
"The best thing about the buy-down is that it sends a positive message," said Hussein Hamid, manager of Kampus Korner. "The partnership with the church is a privilege for us."
The event will occur from 9 a.m. to noon and during that time, gas will be sold for $2.49 a gallon. Hamid said there will be a limit of 10 gallons per customer.
