Sheetz, a major Mid-Atlantic restaurant and convenience chain, is proud to announce Sheetz For the Kidz, an employee-driven charity supporting underprivileged children, raised $782,015 during its annual month of in-store fundraising in July. This is the second highest total ever raised by Sheetz For the Kidz during this month.

“We are extremely appreciative of our customers and their ongoing generosity,” said Brittany Funcheon, Executive Director for Sheetz For the Kidz. “As we continue through these challenging times, our customers continue to amaze us by their desire to give back. Thanks to their donations, Sheetz For the Kidz will be able to make the upcoming holiday season brighter for thousands of local children and families in need.”

Every year, during July and December, Sheetz customers have the opportunity to support kids in their local communities through donation boxes near the register as well as at checkout. 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 the children and their families. Last year, more than $1.8 million was distributed, making the holiday season brighter for nearly 10,000 children in the six states Sheetz operates.

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, which will total 58 children this year.

Furthermore, to broaden the connection to the communities it serves, Sheetz For the Kidz partners with Feeding America to provide food to children in need. This year, their commitment will equate to 6.4 million meals served through backpack programs, kids cafés, school and mobile pantries and summer feeding programs.

There are many ways customers can support Sheetz For the Kidz throughout the year, including:

  • Purchasing a Sheetz For the Kidz water, with 25 cents from each bottle directly supporting the charity.
  • Shopping on AmazonSmile or on the Amazon App and select “Sheetz For the Kidz” as the charity of your choice. Amazon will donate .5% of your purchases to the charity.
