For ten days in October, 24/7 Travel Stores donated 5¢ for every gallon of gasoline sold at its stores to their local food banks. Across those 10 locations the communities raised $23,917.24 for their local food banks. Maple Hill was the top producer out of all of our stores, raising $3,397.11!
The Maple Hill community raised $3,397.11 for Community Health Ministry of Alma. The funds raised from event will provide 10 tons of food for those facing food insecurity in the community. That is about 5% of the annual amount they give to those in need.
President of the company, Mark Augustine, is excited to see the impact these funds will have. “Food Bank Fill-Up was a huge success far exceeding the amount we set out to raise.” said Augustine. “24-7 Travel Stores wants to thank the 24/7 team, each food bank, their volunteers and our local communities for getting involved and supporting this event.”
