Sheetz For the Kidz makes major donation

Sheetz For the Kidz, an employee-driven charity helping children in need, has donated $601,000 to local Feeding America member food banks to provide hunger relief to children struggling with hunger throughout the states in which Sheetz operates: Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.

Funds from Sheetz For the Kidz will be distributed to Feeding America member food banks within the Sheetz footprint, where they can make a difference for children. The $601,000 donation will help provide 6 million meals for children and is part of a new annual commitment to Feeding America.

“Sheetz and Sheetz For the Kidz have always been passionate about helping youth that live in the communities we serve,” Sheetz For the Kidz Executive Director Sarah Piper said in a statement. “For more than 27 years, our employees have helped underprivileged children have a brighter holiday season through Sheetz For the Kidz. This new program takes the community support of our stores to the next level as we are very excited to start our partnership with Feeding America.”
