Customers can support local families in need of clothes, toys and more this holiday season by making a donation at check-out through donation boxes or adding donations to their purchase at the point of sale.
In 2022, customers raised $1.6 million for children in need through in-store fundraising in July and December. The donations helped make the holiday season brighter for more than 11,000 children within the six states Sheetz operates. To date, the charity has positively impacted more than 160,000 children living in the communities Sheetz serves.
In partnership with Make-A-Wish®, funds raised during the campaign also sponsor wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The charity sponsors one child per Sheetz operating district, totaling 71 children this year.
In order to broaden the connection to the communities it serves, Sheetz for the Kidz partners with Feeding America® to provide food to children in need. In 2022, their $685,000 commitment served over 1.5 million meals through backpack programs, kids cafés, school and mobile pantries and summer feeding programs.
