24-7 Travel Stores is excited to partner with Pheasants Forever for the second year in a row to raise funds across its 10 locations to support Kansas Recruit, Retain, Reactivate (R3) programming for local chapters across the state.
Pheasants Forever is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs. In 1982, a group of pheasant hunters saw the connection between upland habitat loss and declining pheasant populations leading to the organization’s start. It’s Pheasants Forever’s vision that current and future generations of hunters and conservationists are able to enjoy abundant populations of wild pheasants, quail, and other wildlife. Wildlife habitat faces monumental challenges in an ever-changing world. Agricultural expansion, a growing population, water wars, urban sprawl, and oil and mineral exploration are all threats to the habitats pheasants, quail and other wildlife call home.
24-7 is excited to once again partner with an organization that means so much to its customers and employees. Every year thousands of hunters travel to Kansas for pheasant hunting season and they often stop for fuel and food at 24/7 locations along the I-70 and I-135 corridors. Mark Augustine, president of 24-7 Travel Stores has been a member and supporter of Pheasants Forever for over 15 years and is passionate about their mission and conservation, as well as being an avid hunter. Plus, many of the staff members of 24-7 Travel Stores enjoy hunting, fishing, boating and the outdoors, making this partnership a perfect fit.
Donations are accepted at the register at all 24-7 Travel Store locations. You can also find authentic Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever apparel and merchandise at all of the 24-7 locations throughout the campaign which runs throughout the month of November.
Last year’s promotion generated over $24,000 for Kansas PF&QF Education & Outreach programming. Help us meet and exceed our 2019 goal of $30,000.
