PARTICIPATING IN NATIONAL HUNGER AWARENESS MONTH
“As a family-owned small business, we value the communities our team members and customers reside, and giving back opportunities such as this, remains a priority for us. This year marks our 5th anniversary of hosting the Food Bank Fill-Up event. We are raising the bar, increasing our commitment from $30K to $50K, and inviting patrons to “Give 5”, 5¢, 50¢, $5, $50 or more. Every cent raised, we will match it, up to $5,000 per store. With ten participating locations, our goal is $100K to support Kansas food banks.
September is National Hunger Awareness Month which is our inspiration to act. We are calling upon our neighbors and area businesses to join our effort in the fight against hunger. With many challenges making ends meet, we understand the importance of food bank services. This event rallies the community radiating generosity and supports those who need assistance. It feels great to be a part of; With the communities’ help, we can do this,” said Ted Augustine, Vice President of Marketing.
To support this cause, stop at any 24/7 Travel Store, September 1 – 30, and make a monetary donation.
