(Fort Worth, Texas – June 2, 2022) – Yesway, one of the country’s fastest growing convenience store chains, today announced its Uvalde Strong fundraising campaign, created to offer support to the Uvalde, Texas community that has been so tragically impacted as the result of a mass shooting at a local elementary school last month that claimed the lives of 19 children and two teachers.
Through June 30, 2022, Yesway and Allsup’s customers will be invited to make $1.00, $5.00, $10.00 (or larger) donations at checkout.
“Everyone at Yesway is deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy, which hits very close to home, and we feel compelled to support our neighbors in Uvalde,” said Tom Trkla, Yesway’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to donating $25,000 to benefit the families and community members who have been affected by the mass shooting tragedy.
