Following their fifth annual fundraiser for Disabled American Veterans (DAV), EG America raised $750,000 for the nonprofit that provides a lifetime of support to veterans and their families, the company announced.

Throughout the month of November, guests at EG America’s Certified Oil, Cumberland Farms, Fastrac, Kwik Shop, Loaf N’ Jug, Minit Mart, Quik Stop, Sprint Food Stores, Tom Thumb, and Turkey Hill stores were encouraged to donate $1, $5, or an amount of their choosing to DAV.

DAV provides a range of programs for veterans including benefits assistance, transportation to and from medical appointments and more, at no cost. Members of EG America’s leadership team presented a check to DAV Executive Director and CFO Cody Vanboxel at the company’s headquarters in January.

“We are honored to support the critical services and benefits DAV provides to veterans across the nation,” said EG America President John Carey. “Thanks to the tremendous generosity of our guests and the collective efforts of our team members, EG America has surpassed all previous years’ donation amounts, raising more than $3 million for DAV since the beginning of our partnership.”

In January 2023, the EG Group announced that it had raised over $600,000 for DAV.
