To celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, Corner Store is hosting Military Mondays and the Share a Hero campaign in order to recognize military and personal heroes.
“Between Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day, summer is a great opportunity to honor our heroes. That includes our military heroes who keep our nation safe from harm and the everyday heroes who make a positive impact on our lives,” said Kim Lubel, president and CEO of CST Brands, parent company to Corner Store.
Every Monday through Veterans Day, San Antonio and Killeen, Texas stores will offer a free medium-sized Cibolo Mountain coffee or Coca-Cola Freestyle fountain drink to all active and retired military members. Customers can show a military ID at the register to get their free beverage every Monday at more than 121 San Antonio-area and 11 Killeen-Temple-Belton locations.
“With the significant military presence in San Antonio and Killeen, Texas, Military Mondays gives our Team Members the opportunity to personally thank those men and women for their service to our community and country,” Lubel said.
In addition to rewarding military heroes, Corner Store is asking customers to share stories about their personal heroes with the Share A Hero sweepstakes. Customers simply take a selfie pointing to a Coca-Cola product at a Corner Store and share it on Instagram, Twitter or at ShareaHero.com with the hashtag #shareahero.
One hundred people will win a $100 Corner Store gift card over the 100 days of summer. Customers can enter three times per day, once on each social network, and the entry will have a chance to win every day for the duration of the contest.
Customers can feature Coca-Cola cans in their selfies labeled with the names of every day heroes such as “Mom,” “Dad” and “Better Half.” Coca-Cola is not an official sponsor of the contest.
