“We felt it was a good time to make these important contributions to the communities we serve,” says GPM Investments spokesperson.
GPM Investments LLC, which operates both the Fas Mart and Shore Stop convenience store chains, has raised $80,000 and allocated $40,000 worth of coffee for donation to 16 local charity organizations located throughout the chain’s footprint in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Tennessee and Virginia.
“The 80,000 was raised from our annual in-store fundraising efforts during the month of June,” said Rick Klyczek, vice president of marketing. “We also wanted to donate goods or services that many local organizations could use, so we divided $40,000 worth of coffee among all markets.”
Klyczek indicated that the donations are part of an ongoing effort to reach out and support the customers, local communities and organizations surrounding their stores. “With all the economic uncertainty around us, we felt it was a good time to make these important contributions to the communities we serve. This is all part of our continued commitment to be a responsible corporate neighbor,” he said.
Fas Mart and Shore Stop are members of the GPM family of convenience stores. GPM Investments LLC is headquartered in Richmond and operates 213 convenience stores and supplies over 115 independent dealers in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Tennessee.
