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.
The Hays community raised $1,932.07 for the St. Joseph Food Bank. For over 14 years, the food pantry has been serving those in their community faced with food insecurity. The funds raised from event can be used however the food bank wishes – whether for operating costs, perishable groceries or other needs.
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.”
