ANKENY, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--True to its mission as a company that is Here for Good, Casey’s General Stores (Nasdaq: CASY) is rallying guests across its 16-state footprint to support those who have served and continue to serve the nation.
Throughout November, Casey’s guests can help provide assistance and scholarships to veterans and their families through two prominent nonprofit organizations, Hope For The Warriors and Children of Fallen Patriots, by rounding-up their purchases. In addition, $1 will be donated for every online or in-app purchase of a large pizza and 2-liter Pepsi® brand drink, up to $50,000 total. Your purchase of these products helps Casey’s and Pepsi to support organizations like Hope for The Warriors and Children of Fallen Patriots.
“Every day, Casey’s is committed to supporting our guests, and we know our guests are just as committed to serving the men and women who have served this great country,” said Darren Rebelez, CEO of Casey’s General Stores, and a veteran of the United States Army. “As a veteran myself, I am proud to be a part of Casey’s support of military heroes and their families, and these two remarkable organizations.”
Children of Fallen Patriots provides college scholarships and educational resources to children who have lost parents in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors is dedicated to helping service members and military families restore a sense of self, family and hope through comprehensive support programs and resources.
“Our goal this Veteran’s Day is to take this special moment to say thank you and honor those men and women in our communities who are serving our country,” said Julie Raheja-Perera, VP of Marketing within PepsiCo’s Central Division. “We are thrilled to partner with Casey’s to provide assistance and scholarships as it’s a way for all of us to give back to veterans and each of their families and honor the sacrifices they make for our country.”
“Our friends at Casey’s are not only Here for Good, they are making a true impact on our country’s military and veteran community,” said Robin Kelleher, president and CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “For the last eight years, Casey’s loyal customers have raised nearly $6 million for HOPE’s mission. Because of Casey’s support, we provided over 12,000 individual services to more than 4,200 military families last year. Casey’s is Here for Good; they’re here for our heroes.”
David Kim, CEO and Founder of Children of Fallen Patriots, added, “Children of Fallen Patriots is truly thankful for the support of everyone at Casey’s and their customers. We are honored to join Casey’s in supporting our country’s veteran families. This partnership will help provide over 40 years of education to the children of our country’s fallen heroes, a truly life altering impact on some very deserving young scholars.”
As an added salute to all service members past and present, Casey’s is providing free coffee on Veterans Day, November 11, across its over 2,200 locations.
