QuickChek raises $163,002 for military families


WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. --- QuickChek has raised $163,002 in just four weeks to help support post-9/11 service members and their families through a recent in-store donation program and a charity golf outing.

Store customers were invited to purchase dog-tag shaped magnets for $1 to benefit Hope For The Warriors, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

Community support was strong as customers purchased a whopping 110,000 dog-tags.

More than 100 golfers participated in an outing at the Hillsborough Golf & Country Club in Hillsborough, N.J., to raise additional funds for the organization.

QuickChek Senior Vice President Mike Murphy, District Leader Robert Porcelli, and Community Events Coordinator Brianna Guzman Quesada presented Jessica McKinney and Steve Bartomioli of Hope for the Warriors with a check on Sept. 6 in the company’s Goshen, N.Y., store. This store raised the most money - $7,019 - of the company’s 144 locations in New Jersey, the Hudson Valley and Long Island during the promotion.

“We’re pleased to continue to honor and support our service members and their families who give so much of themselves,” said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling, whose family-owned company has raised millions of dollars to support a variety of causes benefiting children, families and veterans.

This is the third year in a row the Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based fresh convenience market chain has run this promotion, which ran from May 7 to June 4. The company raised $92,000 for Hope for the Warriors last year and $75,000 in 2014.
