Spicewood, Texas-based Kwik Chek is showing its thanks to frontline workers at hospitals in its communities by donating more than 300 care packages to 13 Texas and Oklahoma hospitals.
The company believes supporting the local community is crucial while weathering the COVID-19 crisis.
Each care package included TXB electrolyte water, Two Hot Mamas salsa, tortilla chips, Keebler crackers, a variety of candy, Fruit & Nut tropical trail mix, a Kwik Chek insulated tumbler mug and a Kwik Card rewards card.
Kwik Chek has also launched initiatives at all of its stores in Texas and Oklahoma to raise funds for United Way to help those impacted by COVID-19.
In partnership with its sister company McCraw Oil, Kwik Chek recently joined the #TexansHelpingTexans and #OklahomansHelpingOklahomans initiatives and pledged to match the first $5,000 raised in-store. Customers have the opportunity to add $1, $3 or $5 to their total at checkout — 100% of funds raised will go directly back into local communities through United Way.
“Guided by our motto, ‘Leave ‘em better,’ we are passionate about supporting the local communities in which we serve,” said Kwik Chek CEO Kevin Smartt. “Now more than ever, it’s important for able-businesses to do everything they can to lift up their neighbors. United Way’s mission to improve lives by mobilizing the power of communities to advance the common good aligns perfectly with the intentions of this campaign.”
All funds raised inside Kwik Chek stores will stay local and go directly to United Way chapters in counties in which the money was raised.
