Kwik Fill’s annual Laurel Run promotion under way
Customers who purchase a sneaker can write their name on the sneaker and have it displayed in the store. The suggested donation is $1, but donations of any amount are appreciated.
Sneakers will be sold at participating locations in Chautauqua and Erie counties in New York, and in Warren County, PA, through July 17. The sneakers, printed on gold-colored paper, bear an image of event namesake Laurel Hotelling.
Last year, the Kwik Fill/Red Apple locations raised $4,222 through the Laurel Run sneaker sales. All the money raised in Chautauqua County goes to TRC Foundation to support disability awareness and prevention efforts, and to enhance employment and work training opportunities for adults with disabilities at The Resource Center’s Work Centers.
Money raised in Erie and Warren counties will be split 50/50 between TRC Foundation and organizations that support people with disabilities in each of those communities. Money raised in Erie County will be shared with The Heritage Centers, while funds raised in Warren County will be shared with Bollinger Enterprises.
