Alimentation Couche-Tard (ACT) announced that it raised over $318,000 for United Way Canada (Greater Montreal Area). The monies were raised through a variety of initiatives, including key events such as an auction held at the company's Laval offices, a special pastries day event, the generous donations of ACT employees, and a series of fundraising activities across various points of sale.

According to the company, the achievement underscores ACT's deepening commitment to United Way Canada Centraide, an organization dedicated to combating poverty and social exclusion in the region. The company stated that the leadership and organization by the Centraide committee were instrumental in the achievement.

The company stated that it holds a firm belief that acts of kindness and solidarity can affect positive, enduring changes in society. Christine Couture, vice-president of taxation, stated: “It is with immense pride that ACT has contributed over $318,000 to the annual Centraide campaign in Montreal. Doing the right thing for our customers and having a meaningful impact on people's lives is central to ACT's values.”

Elsewhere, CF Altitude LLC, operating as Alta Convenience and Petro-Mart, recently raised over $300,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Alta Convenience and Petro-Mart stores across Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Missouri, and Illinois collectively raised the money for the Make-A-Wish Star campaign. The funds raised in each state directly benefit that state’s Make-A-Wish chapter.
