As Yesway, one of the country’s fastest growing convenience store chains, continues to grow, it strives to play a vital role in the communities where each of its stores is located. Through its efforts during the past two years, Yesway has raised more than $1 million during its annual Golf & Clays Classic charitable fundraising tournaments. Held annually at the Cowboys Golf Club and Elm Fork Shooting Sports in Dallas, TX, beneficiaries of the 2022 event included 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 and the Christian Outdoor Alliance.
Additionally, Yesway recognizes and actively supports the communities where its stores are located and in which its team members reside. The company donated more than $54,000 in 2022 alone to the following local charities, civic organizations, military and veterans groups and first responders including local police, fire, EMS and sheriffs’ departments, many of whom were recognized publicly during check presentation ceremonies at new Yesway and Allsup’s store Grand Opening events throughout the year.
“We are grateful to our partners and suppliers for their generous support and thank them all for joining us in supporting the communities our devoted customers, team members, neighbors and fans call home,” said Tom Trkla, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Yesway.
