CommTank Cares

CommTank Cares is a non-profit organization that offers free or discounted fuel oil to other 501C, non-profit organizations in Massachusetts.  Heating oil prices have increased considerably since 2004, yet these organizations operate on very basic budgets and have only limited funds to support crucial services, including health care, education, and job training. CommTank Cares fuel assistance program frees up vital funds to help those who are in the business of helping others. We created CommTank Cares to recycle and reuse unwanted oil and convert a potential hazard into a benefit for our customers and our community. While there are charities which accept monetary donations to provide heating oil to low-income organizations and non-profit groups, there are few organizations that collect and distribute donated oil. Qualifying non-profit organizations having difficulty affording the high cost of heating oil can request fuel and CommTank Cares will deliver as supplies become available.

Heating Oil Donations

The CommTank Cares program gives our customers the option to donate their unused oil when they call us for an oil tank removal or tank pump out service. When you are converting from oil heat to natural gas heat and your tank is more than one-third full, you can donate the oil to a worthwhile cause. After the oil donation amount is verified we provide a donation receipt that can be submitted with your tax return. Oil donated to this program is brought back to CommTank for recycling. The cleaned oil is then delivered to non-profit organizations in Massachusetts that have signed up to receive oil from our program. CommTank previously collected oil donations on behalf of Citizens Energy but Citizens Energy no longer accepts oil donations.

CommTank Cares is registered as a 501(C) non-profit organization. Contributions to CommTank Cares are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. No goods or services are provided in exchange for your generous donation. CommTank Cares federal tax identification number is 46-2960958.
