Yesway’s Texas Strong Fundraising Campaign Achieves $200,000 Charitable Donation Goal in Partnership with Supplier Partners and Customers

Yesway, one of the country’s fastest-growing convenience store chains, today announced that through the generosity of its supplier partners and loyal Yesway and Allsup’s customers and employees, it has achieved the $200,000 goal it had set for its latest Texas Strong fundraising campaign.

Yesway launched the Texas Strong fundraising campaign with an initial commitment to donate $100,000 to extend support and aid to the communities affected by the catastrophic tornadoes that struck the towns of Matador, Hawley and Perryton, Texas in late June, which are among the communities the company serves in the state.

“We deeply empathize with the hardships the people of Matador, Perryton and Hawley are facing, and this contribution is intended to help alleviate some of the more immediate burdens and provide a steppingstone towards recovery and rebuilding,” said Tom Trkla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yesway.

He continued, “Yesway and Allsup’s supplier partners including ABI-Budweiser ($15,000), Delek US Holdings ($10,000), M&H Ice ($10,000), Swedish Match ($10,000), Valero ($10,000), East Texas Sales & Service ($3,000), Vibez Sunglasses ($1,000), SOCi ($250) and Westport Solutions ($200), have been amazingly generous in joining us in raising funds and making donations, as have our loyal Yesway and Allsup’s customers and employees, who collectively donated $28,359. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who have contributed. Their generosity, passion and hard work will make a tangible difference in the lives of those impacted by these recent events. Together, we have demonstrated the true spirit of compassion and community.”
