EG America announced that it raised $657,000 for the American Red Cross during its nationwide in-store fundraiser in March in recognition of Red Cross Month.

Throughout the month, 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 able to donate $1, $5, or an amount of their choosing to the American Red Cross. EG America then matched the amounts raised by the top store in each banner to increase the donation total.

“We are proud to champion the American Red Cross’s mission of helping those in need,” said John Carey, president and CEO of EG America. “We are equally moved by the overwhelming generosity of our guests who contributed to this worthy cause.”

The American Red Cross assists individuals and communities in crisis. Donations enable the organization to respond immediately and deliver lifesaving support to those in need.

“The American Red Cross is grateful to be among the causes that EG America and its customers support,” said Bill Andrews, division fundraising vice president. “The funds raised will be used by our volunteers to power our mission and lifesaving work.”

Additionally, Royal Farms announced its third annual partnership with the Maryland Hospital Association to express gratitude to frontline healthcare workers during National Hospital Week. As a token of appreciation for their dedication, Royal Farms will distribute 250 complimentary coffee coupons to 63 hospitals across Maryland from May 12-18.

“Royal Farms is honored once again to support Maryland’s healthcare workers with a free coffee. Their unwavering commitment to public health is truly commendable. We eagerly seize opportunities like National Hospital Week to honor exceptional individuals tirelessly working to sustain and uplift their communities. We are proud to express our gratitude in partnership with the Maryland Hospital Association,” said Aliyah Atayee, public relations manager for Royal Farms.

“Royal Farms' ongoing generosity truly embodies community support at its finest. For the third consecutive year, they have shown their heartfelt recognition of our hospital teams," says Melony G. Griffith, president and CEO of the Maryland Hospital Association.
