Sheetz For the Kidz, an employee-driven charity providing support, hope, joy and happiness to children in need in the communities Sheetz operates, has kicked off its 26th annual holiday donation drive to make the holiday season brighter for underprivileged children across the region.

During the month of December, customers can donate at checkout at all Sheetz store locations across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia and Ohio, and 100 percent of customer donations will go directly to supporting the children in their community.

Each of Sheetz’s 582 stores will support 16 children from their local communities by partnering with The Salvation Army to receive wish lists from local families.

Sheetz employees volunteer their time to shop, wrap and host holiday parties for the children and their families. At the holiday parties, Santa will greet the children and present them with new toys, clothes and other basic needs purchased specifically for them.

The children and their families will enjoy food, crafts, games and an opportunity to take pictures with Santa. In total, 9,500 children will be impacted by Sheetz For the Kidz this December.

“We are proud to help make a difference in the lives of families in need throughout the communities Sheetz serves,” said Sarah Piper, executive director of Sheetz For the Kidz. “Our thanks go out to our dedicated employees and customers who support our efforts, year after year, as we work to make the holiday season a bit more cheerful for families who need it most.”

Ways customers can support Sheetz For the Kidz:

■ Donate at checkout throughout December.

■ Purchase a Sheetz For the Kidz water, with 25 cents of every bottle sold supports the charity.

■ Purchase a 2-pack of Sheetz For the Kidz Sugared Cookies, with 20 cents from each purchase supporting the charity.

■ Shop on AmazonSmile and select "Sheetz For the Kidz" as the charity of your choice. Amazon will donate .5% of your purchases to Sheetz For the Kidz.

■ Go to www.sheetzforthekidz.org to donate online.

■ Buy Sheetz Art Project swag at www.sheetzshop.com.

This also marks the 14th consecutive year of Sheetz For the Kidz partnering with Make-A-Wish to grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The charity sponsors one child per Sheetz operating district, totaling 55 children this year.

Sheetz For the Kidz is a nonprofit organization, designated as a 501(c) (3) charity, independent of the Sheetz Corporation. The organization was created in 1992 by local store employees wanting to help local children. The mission of the charity is to provide support, hope, joy and happiness to children in need within the communities in which Sheetz operates. To date, the charity has helped more than 119,500 children living in the communities Sheetz serves.

The Salvation Army, established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need without discrimination for more than 135 years in the United States.

Nearly 25 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through a range of social services: food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. Eighty-two cents of every dollar donated to The Salvation Army is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
