Yesway Honors America’s Military Veterans With a $50,000 Donation to Operation Homefront
(Fort Worth, TX – November 10, 2023) – In support of its steadfast commitment to the U.S. military and first responders, and in concert with the annual celebration of Veterans Day, Yesway, one of the fastest-growing convenience store operators in the United States, has made a donation of $50,000 to Operation Homefront.
With this most recent donation to the organization, Yesway aims to support Operation Homefront in meeting the needs of current and former members of the U.S. military and their families, who have sacrificed so much while fighting tirelessly for our nation’s freedom.
At Yesway, we feel it is important to make meaningful contributions to the communities we serve,” said Tom Trkla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yesway. “We are proud to make this donation in support of all that Operation Homefront does for the brave Americans who have served in our armed forces, many of whom we find among the customers visiting our Yesway and Allsup’s locations every day, as well as our retail and corporate employee teams. We celebrate these heroic women and men, and thank them for their service.”
Since 2002, Operation Homefront has been proudly serving America’s military families. The organization provides relief and recurring family support programs and services throughout the year to help military families overcome short-term difficulties so they do not become long-term hardships. Operation Homefront has consistently earned high ratings from leading charity rating services, including Charity Navigator, which gave Operation Homefront 4 Stars for 11 consecutive years for superior service and accountability. At Operation Homefront, 85 percent of expenditures go directly toward delivering programs and services to the military families who need it most.
