WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—EG America announced it raised $636,000 in its most recent fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Society. Throughout the month of May, customers donated $1, $5 or an amount of their choosing during checkout when they visited any of EG America’s more than 1,700 stores nationally, including Cumberland Farms, Fastrac, Kwik Shop, Certified Oil, Turkey Hill, Loaf ‘N Jug, Minit Mart, Quik Stop, Sprint Food Stores and Tom Thumb.
“We are incredibly grateful for the continued generosity of EG America and its guests for their support of our important mission, and through their partnership, we’ll be able to invest greater resources into the fight against cancer nationwide,” said Anthony Marino, executive vice president of the American Cancer Society.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will support the American Cancer Society’s mission to offer life-saving programs, research and services that will help patients and families impacted by cancer with the vision of ending cancer for everyone. This year’s “Fuel The Hope for Change” campaign specifically focuses on essential advocacy, research and patient support programs.
“As cancer impacts so many people, either directly or indirectly, our partnership with the American Cancer Society helps us do our part in raising funds to find a cure for this terrible disease,” said Caroline Taitelbaum, president of EG America. “We owe the tremendous success of this fundraiser to the generosity of our guests, whose unwavering support is so crucial to achieving meaningful progress towards ending cancer.”
In January, EG America announced it had raised $647,000 for Disabled American Veterans through its annual fundraiser, surpassing the amount of money raised in previous years.
