Jiffy Mart Helps Raise Funds in May for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
July 6, 2015
Westminster, Md. – During the month of May, Jiffy Mart locations in Carroll County participated in a campaign to “Give Thanks. Give Hope.” for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is their eighth year participating, and since 2008, Jiffy Mart customers and associates have raised over $59,000 for St. Jude.
Customers were able to purchase a pin-up for one dollar or donate loose change. The goal at each store participating was to raise $2500. Each Jiffy Mart store proudly exceeded their fundraising goal, collectively donating $11,500 directly to St. Jude Research Hospital.
Dwayne Cover, business manager said, “We are proud to partner with St. Jude each year as well as the local organizations such as The Shepherd’s Staff, Carroll County Food Sunday, Special Olympics Maryland, Westminster Boys & Girls Club and the Carroll County Hospital Center for Breast Heath”. Jiffy Mart helped to raise over $25,000 for these organizations in 2014. “We strive to give back to the community and participate in local events, they take care of us so in turn, we like to help take care of them”, he added.
Because of generous donations such as these, no family at St. Jude’s ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. Their mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment, and St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world
Jiffy Mart and its parent company, Tevis Oil, support the well being of the community it serves and are well known for their philanthropy. Jiffy Mart operates convenience stores exclusively in Carroll County including Westminster, Finksburg and Hampstead, and provides Hometown Convenience to all of its valued customers.
