EG America announced it has raised $627,000 in its most recent fundraising campaign for the American Red Cross. During the month of March, guests were able to donate $1, $5 or an amount of their choosing at checkout, with all proceeds going to support the humanitarian mission of the Red Cross.
“We’re honored to partner with organizations that are making a considerable impact on the communities we serve,” said Caroline Taitelbaum, president of EG America. “Reaching $4.1 million in charitable giving dollars since 2020 is a significant milestone for us as we strive to make meaningful contributions to the wonderful organizations with which we partner. This would not be possible without the generosity of our guests, who we cannot thank enough for supporting these causes alongside us.”
The American Red Cross fundraiser brings the total money raised for partner organizations to $4.1 million since 2020. Over the past three years, EG America stores, including Cumberland Farms, Certified Oil, Fastrac, Kwik Shop, Loaf N’ Jug, Minit Mart, Quik Stop, Sprint, Tom Thumb and Turkey Hill, provided guests an opportunity to donate to select partner organizations.
“We are tremendously grateful to EG America. Not only did EG invite customers to support our life-saving work, all 10 EG brands recognized our amazing volunteers coast to coast during March is Red Cross Month. Trained Red Cross volunteers are a lifeline to people in need everywhere and every day in America,” said Anne McKeough, chief development officer of the American Red Cross.
