Feeding Tampa Bay was proud to celebrate Wawa Day with our valued partner on Thursday, April 13th. At the event, our friends at Wawa Tampa presented Feeding Tampa Bay with a check for $40,754 from The Wawa Foundation. With this check, Wawa has now contributed funds to support over 2 million meals through Feeding Tampa Bay. We are proud to be partners with an organization that is so dedicated to its community.
Wawa Day originated with the opening of the first Wawa store in 1964, and is now the anniversary of The Wawa Foundation. The Wawa Foundation is the vehicle that enables the company to build stronger communities through partnerships with nonprofits around the country. The goal of the foundation is to donate $50 million to charities revolving around “Health, Hunger, and Everyday Heroes” by 2018. As of yesterday, Wawa has met $35 million of its goal.
Feeding Tampa Bay is gracious for these #HungerHeroes and all they do to strengthen the lives of those in our community.
