Sheetz kicks off Sheetz for the Kidz campaign

Sheetz recently kicked off its annual month of in-store fundraising at all of its 589 locations to support Sheetz For the Kidz, an employee-driven charity supporting underprivileged children.

Customers have the opportunity to support kids in their local communities through donation boxes near the register and also by adding donations to their purchase at the point of sale throughout July.

With 100 percent of all donations directly supporting local children, Sheetz For the Kidz provides children in need the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with gifts such as new toys, clothes and other basic needs.

Working with the Salvation Army to receive wish lists from local families, Sheetz employees shop, wrap and host holiday parties for children and their families. Last year, more than $1.6 million was distributed, making the holiday season brighter for more than 9,500 children in the six states in which Sheetz operates.
