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 Colby community raised $2,073.24 for Genesis Food Pantry of Thomas County during this year’s Gallons for Good event. District managers personally delivered the donation to Genesis Food Pantry on Nov. 14. 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.”
