Kwik Care’s September Recipient Supports Victims of Domestic Violence
When it comes to supporting local non-profits, there might not be an easier and more impactful program than Kwik Care.
If you're not aware, Kwik Care has helped raise both funds and awareness for local nonprofits. Each month, Kwik Stop and Dairy Queen help collect donations for a different organization. Donations can be made easily by requesting your total purchase at any of those businesses (including at the gas pumps at Kwik Stop) be rounded up to the nearest dollar. The additional cents used to round up will be donated to the respective charity of the month.
This month's Kwik Care recipient is Forever Amy, a new nonprofit whose mission is "to help protect and empower survivors of domestic violence and abuse, to create greater awareness, and to encourage collective action from our entire community to end violence and abuse," per their website.
They work very closely with Resources Unite [....] They help people get out of a [bad] situation. It was founded for Mark's aunt Amy, [whom they lost] 20 years ago to domestic abuse. If you look at their logo, there's mountains in the logo, [which] represents the ups and downs and challenges that come with the heartache of losing a loved one to domestic abuse and violence. In those mountains are 106 names of Amy's family members that miss her today.
All month long, Kwik Stop and Dairy Queen will be taking donations that will go directly to Forever Amy via the aforementioned Kwik Care canisters at the counter or if customers request their purchase-total be rounded up to the nearest dollar (the difference going to Forever Amy).
