We were thrilled to be a part of today’s Wawa Day in Newark as Wawa announced that the Food Bank of Delaware was selected as one of several organizations to receive donated Wawa Gift Cards to help fuel our fleet of 27 vehicles, including 12 diesel-powered box trucks.
In honor of Wawa’s 58th Anniversary in the convenience retail industry, Wawa launched the “Gift Cards for Care” initiative with a total donation of $1 million in the form of gift cards to eight organizations including The Wawa Foundations’ seven National Partners: American Red Cross, Check Out Hunger, Children’s Miracle Network, JDRF, LLS, Special Olympics and the USO, plus community partner, Meals on Wheels.
“We’re thrilled to receive the generous gift card donation from our longstanding partners at Wawa to provide hunger, fuel and resource relief to our constituents,” said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Cathy Kanefsky. “During these times of uncertainty, it’s comforting to know our organization and the people we serve can count on Wawa to brighten our days and provide basic necessities at a time that it’s needed most.”
