Local charities, civic organizations, school districts, military and veterans groups, and first responders including local police, fire, EMS, and sheriffs’ departments in the communities served by its Yesway and Allsup’s stores to benefit
Fort Worth, Tex. – December 5, 2023 – Yesway, one of the fastest-growing convenience store chains, continually strives to play a vital role in the communities where each of its stores is located. Through its efforts over the past three years, Yesway has raised over $1.5 million during its annual Golf & Clays Classic charitable fundraising tournaments. Held each year at the Cowboys Golf Club and Elm Fork Shooting Sports in Dallas, Texas, beneficiaries of the 2023 event include Operation Homefront, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to help build strong, stable, and secure military families so that they can thrive in the communities they have worked so hard to protect, as well as the Christian Outdoor Alliance, Walk In Their Shoes, (an Under Armor partner), whose aim is to put $5 million worth of shoes on the feet of disadvantaged youth, and various other organizations including initiatives to support local playgrounds.
Yesway also recognizes and actively supports the communities where its stores are located and in which its team members reside. The funds raised at the company’s Golf & Clays Classic this year have again made it possible for Yesway to make meaningful donations to local charities, civic organizations, military and veterans groups, and first responders including local police, fire, EMS, and sheriffs’ departments. Many of these organizations were recognized publicly during check presentation ceremonies at Yesway and Allsup’s store Grand Opening events throughout 2023.
