QuickChek Raises $45,000 For Veteran Non-Profit in Manasquan
Veterans Day is this Wednesday and it’s always fantastic to see many New Jersey businesses do what's best for our military vets. The convenience store chain QuickChek raised $109,000 that will benefit military veterans and military families throughout the Garden State. Thanks to a successful golf outing and other fundraiser events, $45,000 of that $109,000 will support Bridging The Gap in Manasquan. This non-profit has one goal in mind and that's to open doors to employers for all veterans or military spouses to discover their career dreams. If you are a veteran looking for a new career or transitioning out of the military, Bridging The Gap can help you! Contact them at 732-948-9309 or check out their website for more information by clicking this link! Bridging The Gap and QuickChek started working together two years ago. QuickChek has hired a half-dozen veterans thanks to the Bridging The Gap program! "We are proud to honor our veterans..." QuickChek Corporate Loss Prevention Manager Lou Linares said in a statement.
QuickChek also wrapped up its in-store fundraiser with Semper Fi & America's Fund and raised $64,000. During the six-week long promotion, many of you might have been asked to purchase paper military boots for $1 at your local QuickChek. The convenience store chain has now raised more than $700,000 in the past six years in support of New Jersey military veterans and their families.
A special thank you to all United States Veterans and military families. You are the reason why we live in the greatest country on this planet! CHEERS! - Jimmy G
