Sheetz to match donations to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

ALTOONA, Pa. - Sheetz customers can team up with the convenience store chain in an effort to help their southern neighbors in need.

The Altoona-based company announced Tuesday that it will match 100 percent of in-store donations to Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts, up to $50,000.

"Our hearts go out to the communities recovering from the widespread devastation caused by this storm," said Joe Sheetz, the company's president and CEO. "As a company, we are always focused on supporting the communities in which we operate, and we want to extend our support to the communities impacted by this storm."

The donations will be collected between September 7 and September 30 at the checkout counter in each of Sheetz's 560 stores in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia.

"We wholeheartedly embrace our family values and will do whatever we can to support those facing this tragedy as they seek safety, comfort and start to rebuild their lives," Sheetz said.

All money collected, as well as Sheetz's 100-percent match, will be donated to the American Red Cross.
