KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—Pilot Company is kicking off its annual American Heart Month Campaign at more than 670 participating travel centers, according to a news release. Customers can donate to the American Heart Association’s Life Is Why campaign online or at participating Pilot Flying J or One9 Fuel Network travel centers from February 1-28.
This is the 6th year Pilot Company has teamed up with the American Heart Association, and this year, there are new ways for customers to give, including donations through the purchase of Pilot Flying J eGift cards, and in-store donations will be accepted at Flying J locations in Canada from February 22 to February 28 to benefit the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (Heart & Stroke).
Additional, Pilot Company's fundraising initiatives include $1, $3 and $5 red paper hearts that will be available for purchase at participating travel centers, and guests can round up their purchase to the nearest whole dollar or elect to donate other amounts to the American Heart Association on the pin-pad during checkout at participating U.S. travel centers.
“Over the past five years, we've been able to raise more than $5 million to help support the life-saving work of the American Heart Association," said Brian Ferguson, chief merchant of Pilot Company. "This shows that every donation made, whether it's a $3 paper heart or the extra change from rounding up a purchase, adds up to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our guests and team members across North America. We hope you'll join us again this year in giving back to both the American Heart Association and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.”
