Following the tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that took the lives of 19 children and two teachers, Yesway has announced its Uvalde Strong fundraising campaign that aims to support the Uvalde community.
Through June 30, 2022, Yesway and Allsup’s customers will be invited to make $1, $5, $10 or larger donations at checkout.
“Everyone at Yesway is deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy, which hits very close to home, and we feel compelled to support our neighbors in Uvalde,” said Tom Trkla, Yesway’s chairman and CEO. “We are committed to donating $25,000 to benefit the families and community members who have been affected by the mass shooting tragedy. We ask our Yesway and Allsup’s customers to join us by making donations at our stores. Every generous donation will help us to achieve our goal of raising $50,000 for those whose lives have been irrevocably changed.”
