Mirabito Energy Products participated in the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign for the 2023 season. On November 17, the Mirabito Convenience Store in Binghamton, New York, served as a designated donation location.

Mirabito staff members were “ringing the bell” and collecting donations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. As a thank you for their contribution to the cause, donors received a coupon for a free 16-ounce coffee, redeemable at any Mirabito Convenience Store location through the end of 2023.

“At Mirabito Energy Products, our commitment to supporting community and family values is deeply ingrained in our mission. It’s more than just providing energy; it’s about fostering connections and making a positive impact in the lives of those around us,” said Marissa Sweeney, marketing director for Mirabito Energy Products. “It’s an honor to support an organization that does so much to help those in need within our community.”

Funds raised through the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign go toward crucial programs and services, such as shelter and housing assistance, food distribution, utility bill support and various educational and community initiatives.

On November 24, Mirabito partnered with the Children’s Charity of Greater Binghamton for its 16th annual toy drive in support of Broome County Toys for Tots. As part of Give Back Friday, the Mirabito Convenience Store in Vestal, New York, hosted a toy drive from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Donors enjoyed a discount of 40 cents on their gas purchase, refreshments and visits from Santa and other characters played by Mirabito staff members.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Children’s Charity of Greater Binghamton for this year’s toy drive supporting Broome County Toys for Tots,” said Sweeney. “The holidays are a time for giving, and we believe in the power of coming together as a community to make a positive impact.”

The convenience retailer also announced that it donated $2,500 to The Locker Room 345, a local community organization that provides basic clothing needs to local students and families. The Mirabito donation was for Operation Warm, which helps provides kids with high-quality winter coats when they may otherwise go without.

“We are honored to support Locker Room 345 in their efforts to bring warmth and joy to children in our community, and we support them in partnering with Operation Warm to make that happen,” said Sweeney.
