Mayoral candidate and businessman Willie Wilson has announced the dates for his next giveaways totaling $2 million in food and gas.

The food giveaway will take place on June 29th in partnership with Cermak Fresh Market and the gasoline giveaway is scheduled for July 9th, with participation from 15 gas stations across the city and suburbs.

The latest gasoline giveaway, announced during a news conference on Tuesday, is now the fifth Wilson has hosted amid rising gas prices across the country. This will also be the second grocery giveaway – the first on May 25 attracted a total of 29 Pete’s Fresh Market and Cermak Fresh Market locations.

Previous gas giveaways gave people a $2 per gallon discount on gas, but Wilson said this time people can come and fill their tanks for free.

“People need a break from all the high costs,” Wilson said. “If prices keep going up, we will help people for as long as it takes.”

In addition to the giveaways, Wilson also plans to offer another round of help to seniors who can’t get out to get gas or buy groceries at the giveaways by reaching out to retirement homes across the city.

More details on the locations of the giveaways will be announced on his website and Facebook, he said.

Wilson renewed his demands on Governor J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot to impose a three-month suspension on Illinois city and state gas taxes, and also called on Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to support the suspension proposal.
