BUY GAS HELP SCHOOL
Sonny and Yash Patel, owners of the Hennessey Eagle Mart convenience store, are donating a portion of all gas sales to Hennessey Schools. The Patel brothers went to high school in Chicago and after graduation heard that the Hennessey store was for sale from a relative in Enid. They purchased the store in 2011 and moved to Hennessey and have been making improvements ever since. The most recent improvement was all new signage and new electronic gas pumps. Sonny said, “The new pumps allow us to sell gas 24/7 and to take credit cards at the pumps.” The Patel family has 2 children in Hennessey schools. They wanted a way to help the community so they decided to make this contribution to the school. Sonny said, “We are going to do it for one year, if it goes well we will keep it going.”
