WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Elite Gas and Service, a station in Wakefield, Mass., offered free gas on April 10 and the morning of April 11 to any doctor, nurse, dentist or EMT with identification.
Owner Ervant (“Ed”) Kibarian declared on his Facebook page: “Just listened to a WBZ broadcast which made me want to pay it forward in gratitude and thanks to our doctors and nurses in this time of uncertainty.” These health workers are risking their lives to help others, particularly now with the dangers of COVID-19.
Elite’s post on Facebook reached over 10,000 people. Quite a few came on Saturday morning, in particular, when people were off their shifts, Kibarian reported afterwards.
Kibarian started Elite Gas and Service in 2015.
