EG America raises $752,000 to support veterans

DAV EG America FundraiserERLANGER, Ky. – As a result of a national campaign, EG America and its 1,700-plus convenience stores raised $752,000 for DAV (Disabled American Veterans), a charity dedicated to empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.

Throughout November, guests at select EG America convenience stores donated $1, $5 or an amount of their choosing to DAV during checkout. This was the fifth year that EG America chose to support DAV and their programs for veterans and their families.

“We are grateful to EG America’s longstanding commitment to DAV’s mission,” said Barry Jesinoski, CEO and national adjutant of DAV. “Since 2019, EG America and their generous guests have chosen to support our nation’s disabled heroes and their families. We are immensely appreciative of their kindness.”

“We are honored to support the critical services and benefits DAV provides to veterans across the nation,” said EG America President John Carey. “Thanks to the tremendous generosity of our guests and the collective efforts of our team members, EG America has surpassed all previous years’ donation amounts, raising more than $3 million for DAV since the beginning of our partnership.”
