Casey’s General Store (http://www.caseys.com) will present a donation check of more than $390K to Hope For The Warriors® (http://www.hopeforthewarriors.org), a national nonprofit organization that assists post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. The check will be presented by Bob Myers, Casey’s General Store President and CEO and will be presented to Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President. The presentation will take place at the Casey’s General Store located at 2601 SE Creekview Dr., Ankeny, IA on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 10 a.m.
This generous donation is the result of a promotion held throughout the month of May in conjunction with Memorial Day. During the month, Casey’s donated $1.00 to Hope For The Warriors® for every taco pizza sold. Through this promotion, the company aimed to raise both funds and awareness for Hope For The Warriors® and to help the growing needs of military families. Vendor partners, General Mills, MARS, Miller Coors, Anheuser Busch, Pabst Blue Ribbon, in addition to other vendors, donated to the nonprofit through sales promotions at Casey’s locations.
