ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Markets by Tiger Fuel were recognized Friday as the Albemarle County Police Foundation’s first Community Partner of the Year of 2024. 

Each quarter, the ACPD Foundation recognizes one local business or organization for their service and dedication to the community and first responders. 

“It's almost silly to be receiving an award from them when it really should be us thanking them every day for what they do,” said Maurice Lamarche, retail director for The Markets. 

Every year, the Markets by Tiger Fuel teams up with ACPD for Police Week, which takes place in May. ACPD Foundation President Kate Kaminski said they are grateful for the partnership and looking forward to future events.
