QuikTrip celebrated National Safe Place Week, which took place March 17-23, by recognizing the impact its employees’ efforts and partner agencies have had over the last year.

QuikTrip facilitated 395 Safe Place calls over the last year, ensuring youth in need could access services and care in times of crisis. Additionally, QuikTrip supports 22 Safe Place partner agencies across the nation through annual charitable giving and grants as part of its efforts to invest 5% of net profits into the communities it serves.

“At QuikTrip, the safety and security of our employees and customers is always our top priority,” said QuikTrip corporate communications manager Aisha Jefferson. “Through our partnership with National Safe Place Network, we provided crucial assistance to, on average, more than one youth per day over the past year. We salute our employees for embracing this important part of our mission and we also thank each of our 22 local partner agencies who provide vital services in our communities.”

All QuikTrip stores are Safe Place locations where youth in crisis can access a path to safety and services, recognizable by the distinctive yellow and black Safe Place sign displayed on store facades or on signs in parking lots. Safe Place provides access to immediate help and safety for young people in crisis.

QuikTrip is a longtime supporter of the program, serving as a Safe Place locations partner for over 30 years across a network of more than 1,000 QT stores nationwide.

“Unfortunately, all across the country, there are young people in crisis looking for help. QuikTrip is often their first stop because they know it’s safe, clean and the employees are always willing to help. This partnership is saving and changing lives,” said Laurie Jackson, president and CEO for National Safe Place Network.
