Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz this week announced a new October campaign to raise funds for the Special Olympics, a nonprofit focused on creating a new world of inclusion and community. Customers at all of Sheetz’s 596 locations will have the opportunity to support the Special Olympics through donation boxes near the register and also adding donations to their purchase at the point of sale throughout the month of October.
The store that raises the most money for Special Olympics in October will receive a special celebration from Sheetz.
“Special Olympics has always been near and dear to our heart, and is an incredible organization we’re proud to support,” said Ryan Sheetz, AVP, brand strategies, at Sheetz. “We are constantly working to grow our contributions and expand the ways that we can make a difference for this organization. Our goal is to make a greater impact, year after year. This campaign was designed to do just that.”
Sheetz said that it is committed to giving back in each and every community that it serves. Sheetz will still continue to support the Special Olympics’ Summer Games and Polar Plunge events. During the grand opening ceremony for its new stores, Sheetz will also continue to donate $2,500 to the Special Olympics chapter in the specific state that Sheetz’s new store is located in.
As a proud supporter of Special Olympics for over 20 years, Sheetz extends its support through financial contributions, product donations and event volunteers.
