WaKeeney Store Raises $7,323.08 for Trego County Food Pantry

Posted On in

For National Hunger Action Month, all ten 24/7 Travel Stores locations across Kansas collected monetary donations for local food banks at the register and matched donations for the first $30,000 donated throughout the month of September. Across all 10 locations, the communities raised $57,996.25 for their local food banks.

Through community donations and corporate matching dollars, the WaKeeney store raised $7,323.08 for Trego County Food Pantry. These funds raised during the event can be used however the food banks wish – whether for operating costs, perishable groceries or other needs.

“Our store teams, partner food banks, local communities and customers stepped up in a big way in a year with big needs. We set out to double the impact of our Food Bank Fill-Up program, and we did just that by raising $57,996.25 this year compared to $24,092.78 in 2019,” said Ted Augustine, Manager of Growth and Development. “We are proud to be a part of our industry’s September Hunger Action Month efforts, but what is unique about our program, and what I think our communities appreciate, is all dollars raised go directly to each store’s local food bank.”
