Casey’s General Stores raised over $1 million for Hope for the Warriors, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, family and hope for veterans, service members and military families.
During 15 days in November, Casey's customers were given the opportunity to round-up their purchases to support military families and veterans. More than 2,100 stores in 15 states raised $1,099,654.16.
“As a veteran, I am personally humbled by the overwhelming response from our guests and honored that we can help Hope For The Warriors serve those who’ve served,” said Casey’s President/CEO Darren Rebelez.
Since 2014, Hope For The Warriors has raised nearly $6 million and served 3,703 people in states with Casey's General Stores, providing support through a variety of programming, including clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation and transition services.
“Thanks to the continued support of Casey’s, its team members and guests and campaigns like this, we’re honored to have the ability to serve the military community living and serving among us and its ever-changing needs,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization. He said that 72% of its staff are veterans or military family members.
