Kum & Go to support Habitat’s Home is the Key national campaign

Kum & Go to support Habitat’s Home is the Key national campaign

 

Kum & Go district raising the most donations will build a home in their community

Des Moines, Iowa, and Atlanta, 2017-Apr-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — For the fourth consecutive year, Kum & Go convenience stores and Habitat for Humanity are partnering to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.  Throughout April, Kum & Go has pledged its support of Habitat’s Home is the Key (#HomeIsTheKey) national campaign with a corporate donation and in-store fundraising.  Through their donations, Kum & Go customers will help select a community in which Kum & Go will sponsor the construction of a new Habitat home.

In addition, Kum & Go will distribute several grants to local Habitat for Humanity organizations. Grants will be based on which Kum & Go service areas raise the most money through customer traffic.

Between April 1 and 30, customers can join the effort in a few ways:

  • Adding a $1 or more Habitat donation to in-store purchases.
  • Donating spare change to countertop donation box “houses”
  • Purchasing Kum & Go water, where 10 cents per bottle will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

Since 2014, Kum & Go along with their customers, have donated more than $1.5 million to support Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. More than 200 Kum & Go associates have volunteered to build alongside future homeowners in locations where Kum & Go operates. Three Kum & Go-sponsored Habitat homes have been built in Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Minot, North Dakota; and Story City, Iowa, as a result of the donations.

“Kum & Go and Habitat both share a commitment to building great communities,” says Kyle J. Krause, president & CEO of Kum & Go. “Along with the generous contributions of our loyal customers and through the support of our store associates, Kum & Go is proud to once again support Habitat and the need for affordable housing.”

“We are so pleased to partner with Kum & Go and their customers again in 2017,” said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, senior vice president, Development, Habitat for Humanity International. “This partnership has grown and expanded every year, reaching more families who are working to build a better life for themselves and their families. We are very grateful for Kum & Go’s support.”

The Kum & Go support for Habitat’s Home is the Key initiative, which includes a corporate cash donation and customer fundraising component is currently Habitat’s only partnership with a convenience retailer.  Habitat for Humanity works in nearly 1,400 communities in the United States, and in more than 70 countries, where future homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

Customers can donate in-stores throughout the month of April. To donate to Habitat online, visit habitat.org. To find the nearest Kum & Go location, visit www.kumandgo.com/find-a-store.
