For ten days in October, 24/7 Travel Stores donated 5 cents for every gallon of gas sold at its stores to their local food banks. Across all 10 locations, the communities raised $24,092.78 for their local food banks.
The Abilene community raised $3,412.55 for Abilene Area Food & Clothing Bank during this year’s Gallons for Good event. District managers personally delivered the donation to Abilene Area Food & Clothing Bank on Nov. 6. These funds can be used however the food bank wishes — whether for operating costs, perishable groceries or other needs.
“Our 24-7 Travel Store teams pumped up their communities for ‘Gallons for Good’ through participating in a local parade, visiting community churches, engaging their local chambers, colleges, museums along with their convention and visitor bureaus to promote this ten-day Food Bank Fill-Up event,” said Mark Augustine, President of 24-7 Travel Stores. “Our teams are excited about supporting their local Food Banks just before the Holiday Season to help families in need.”
