In WaKeeney, the Trego County Food Pantry received their donation last week, $3,031.44 . These 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 each food bank, their volunteers and our local communities for getting involved and supporting this event.”
