The Gas Station That Cares - A Better Road Home, providing services for 10-plus years
Since 2013, Sinopec has run the "The Gas Station That Cares – A Better Road Home", a large-scale public welfare program for migrant workers returning home by motorcycle or minibus. Responding to their appeals and needs, Sinopec has expanded and improved its services for them.
Providing services wholeheartedly
In 2013, Sinopec was the first to provide "free refueling" and other services at the gas stations in Guangdong for migrant workers returning home by motorcycle or minibus. After 11 years of development, "The Gas Station That Cares - A Better Road Home" has grown from "free refueling" to a "caring three-in-one service" and "1+10+X+1" service; from the "caring bus" special service to a direct bus service, linking five provinces and regions; from the mailing luggage to fulfilling the "car dream" of fellow villagers; and extending the "The Gas Station That Cares - A Better Road Home" service to the "Love Station" and "Driver's Home". With more diverse services, the Spring Festival travel rush has become safer and warmer. The project has so far served more than 57.8 million people returning home during the festival and 4.58 million migrant workers returning home by motorcycle or minibus, involving 53,000 volunteer services and free refueling for 94,000 motorcycles or minibuses. At present, the Gas Station That Cares – A Better Road Home has become a well-known public welfare brand in China, and won many international and domestic honors such as Superior Achievement in Global Branding and Reputation Awards; the SASAC "Central Enterprise Outstanding Volunteer Program"; The Gold Standard Award for Corporate Citizenship; the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China "Youth Volunteer Service Silver Award"; and Public Welfare Model Popular Program Award.
Providing services to benefit people as planned
In January 2023, Sinopec launched "The Gas Station That Cares – A Better Road Home", a large-scale public welfare program for the migrant workers returning home by motorcycle or minibus during the Spring Festival travel rush. This year marks its 11th edition. During this period, Sinopec's 166 gas stations in Guangdong, Guangxi, and Jiangxi provided free gas refueling, gift packages, and other services for those returning home; migrant workers working in Guangdong; and truck drivers engaged in cross-provincial transportation.
Upgraded free services
By means of "The Gas Station That Cares - A Better Road Home", Sinopec provided free "1+10+X" service during the Spring Festival travel rush, targeting at outdoor workers such as people returning to Guangxi and other places by motorcycle or minibus; long-distance truck drivers, sanitation workers; delivery boys, and takeout riders; as well as vehicles of people on duty. It provided migrant workers with 1,000 portions of disinfectants and 3,000 disposable face masks free of charge, so that they could return home safe and sound. Besides, to help migrant workers returning home by motorcycle or minibus, Sinopec worked with Guangong Post EMS to offer free mailing service, with 2,000 places for free delivery of Spring Festival purchases. Successful applicants could mail 20 kilograms at 20 gas stations in Guangdong.
Upgraded gift packages
Sinopec has also improved service outlets and expanded service coverage, so that more people enjoy services in the areas where migrant workers and outdoor workers gather and pass by. For those travelling by motorcycle or minibus during the Spring Festival travel rush, Sinopec delivered 2,000 "free refueling packages". Besides, it provided 1,000 "Spring Festival refueling packages" for couples working in Guangdong who were engaged in cross-provincial truck transportation. It worked with more than 10 enterprises such as Easy Joy and Great Wall Lubricant, providing 2,000 "lucky bags" for those returning home by motorcycle or minibus during the Spring Festival travel rush. For the first time, the China Children and Youth Foundation joined the "The Gas Station That Cares - A Better Road Home" public welfare campaign, offering 3,000 "child care gift packages" to the children of truck drivers and motorcycle riders.
Upgraded family reunion dinner
At the "Driver's Home" and "Love Station", family reunion dinner was offered to outdoor workers such as sanitation workers, delivery boys, taxi drivers, and community security guards, so that those working during the Spring Festival travel rush could have a happy festival.
