RKA Petroleum is proud to support Forgotten Harvest in their efforts to eradicate hunger across Metro Detroit. In addition to fueling Forgotten Harvest’s fleet of 34 refrigerated delivery trucks, four RKA employees serve as volunteers in their facility each month. RKA Petroleum knows that one pound of food equals one family that can be fed daily, and strives to do our part in supporting this endeavor.
During every holiday season, employees at RKA Petroleum collectively select a family in need to sponsor, and endows them with a generous gift of clothing, toys and food. By sponsoring a family in need, RKA Petroleum employees feel truly blessed by the opportunity to spread good cheer to others and make the holidays brighter.
