In the aftermath of the devastating floods in Louisiana that impacted more than 150,000 homes, Casey’s General Stores is partnering with the American Red Cross to raise money to support the relief operations.
“We are proud to be able to serve as a way for communities to contribute to such a worthy cause,” said Mike Richardson, Vice President of Marketing for Casey’s General Stores. “The generosity that is displayed by our patrons and employees truly is amazing and appreciated by those in need.”
Customers can support the Red Cross by walking in to any Casey’s General Store and adding a donation to their purchases. All money raised will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to directly support people impacted by disasters. A donation of $10 will provide a meal and drink delivered from an Emergency Response Vehicle to a client residing in a temporary shelter.
Casey’s General Store customers can donate at any store through September 20th.
