Giving campaign Convenience retailer Sheetz has launched its July Giving Campaign to support Sheetz For the Kidz, an employee-driven charity supporting underprivileged children.
With 100 percent of all donations directly supporting local children, Sheetz For the Kidz provides children in need the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with gifts such as new toys, clothes and other basic needs. Working with the Salvation Army to receive wish lists from local families, Sheetz employees shop, wrap and host holiday parties for the children and their families. Last year, more than $1.6 Million was distributed, making the holiday season brighter for more than 9,500 children in the six states Sheetz operates.
In partnership with Make-A-Wish, funds raised during the campaign also sponsor wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The charity sponsors one child per Sheetz operating district, totaling 55 children this year.
Also, Sheetz For the Kidz recently announced a $601,000 donation to Feeding America to provide food to children in need. This commitment equates to approximately 10,000 meals per store.
