QUICKCHEK TO RAISE MONEY FOR LOCAL VETERANS CUSTOMERS CAN HELP SUPPORT MILITARY FAMILIES

Hope For The Warriors® In-Store Promotion Begins June 10

WHITEHOUSE STATION, NJ — QuickChek Corporation, a market leader in food services dedicated to serving its communities, will once again be raising funds to help support post-9/11 service members and their families through an in-store donation program.

Customers are invited to purchase paper dog-tags for $1 at any of the company’s 149 fresh convenience market store locations in the metropolitan area beginning Saturday, June 10 through July 15, 2017 to benefit Hope For The Warriors, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

QuickChek raised more than $163,000 during the campaign last year. All of the funds raised will stay in local areas to help support local veterans.

“We are very pleased to continue to honor and support our service members and their families who give so much of themselves,” said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling, whose family-owned-company has raised millions of dollars to support a variety of causes benefiting children, families, and veterans.

Since 2014, the Whitehouse Station, NJ-based chain has raised more than $330,000 for Hope For The Warriors and its programs through this in-store promotion, a charity golf outing, and the Long Island Run For The Warriors.

“We are also very proud of our customers who continue to strongly support our efforts to give back to the communities we serve,” added Durling. “It is a reflection of our being a welcome part of the neighborhoods where we have store locations, of our commitment to being fresh and local, and recognition of our total dedication to our customers.”

Each paper dog-tag that is purchased will be signed and posted on the walls of each of the company’s stores throughout New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island in support of the service members and their families.

“It’s a great honor to receive the continued support of QuickChek and its employees and customers for the fourth year in a row,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and President of Hope For The Warriors. “There is a strong military tie in New Jersey and New York and we are proud to assist veterans, service members and military families here and across the country.”

QuickChek’s ongoing commitment to its communities was among the reasons it was named the 2016 National Convenience Store Chain of the Year.

During the first three weeks of the campaign consumers can enjoy great savings during QuickChek’s “All Day Lunch” as all six-inch subs are on sale for just $3 through July 2.
