Petron Malaysia teamed up with MyKasih Foundation for the “PetronMyKasih Jom Derma” donation programme to give Petron Miles (PMiles) cardholders a chance to donate their points for a good cause.
From 7 May until 31 August 2021, each P-Miles point donated will be converted into
cash and vested into MyKasih Foundation.
Through the Foundation, B40 families can purchase groceries and other necessities from more than 250 retail store partners including Mydin, Tesco, Giant, Econsave, The Store, Aeon, 99 Speedmart, and TF Value Mart.
Every 500 PMiles points donated will be converted into RM5, while every 1000 PMiles
points into RM10. Customers may donate in multiples of RM5 or RM10 at all Petron
service stations through the sales counter.
“Giving back to the community, particularly at this time when the pandemic has
adversely affected so many lives, is our way of helping alleviate the B40 families’
Working together with MyKasih Foundation, we will be providing our customers the opportunity to help by donating their PMiles points to those in need. Our PMiles card is more than just a loyalty card that provides members with attractive rewards; it also now allows members to share their points with needy families from as low as 500 P-Miles points, which converts to a gift of RM5,” said Choong Kum Choy, Head of Retail and Commercial Business of Petron Malaysia.
“Using the PMiles card to contribute is easy and convenient as our customers can do so
whenever they are at our stations. And for the benefit of those who contribute, the
donations will be issued with tax-exempt receipts from MyKasih,” added Choong.
MyKasih Foundation is a Government-approved charitable organization. Since its
inception in 2009, the foundation has channelled RM280 million worth of aid to more
than 300,000 low-income households and students nationwide.
The effectiveness of the MyKasih programme is attributed to the cashless nature of its welfare distribution. The programme runs on a proprietary chip technology of the MyKad which enables charity funds to be channelled in a secure, targeted and transparent manner, directly to rightful recipients via their MyKad accounts.
Petron customers who donate through this programme will be issued with a receipt. This programme is available at all Petron stations nationwide.
