TUCSON, Ariz. -- The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF) announced a 2013 fundraising program for Hire Heroes USA.
This year, NCASEF, 7-Eleven Inc. and vendor partners plan to donate a minimum of $500,000 to Hire Heroes USA, which would top last year’s donation of $340,000. NCASEF has supported Hire Heroes for the past three years.
"Our family of 7-Eleven franchisees, their families, their employees and our vendors are deeply committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work," stated Bruce Maples, chairman of the NCASEF. "Our guiding principle has always been to support worthy causes whose work has a direct impact on the communities we serve."
Hire Heroes USA is a non-profit organization offering transition and job search assistance to injured and/or disabled military veterans.
The NCASEF Hire Heroes campaign will take place in November and December. In addition, Hire Heroes will benefit from NCASEF’s annual Joe Saraceno Charity Golf Tournament, scheduled to take place at NCASEF’s Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas in two weeks.
A minimum of $50,000 will also be raised and donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southern Arizona, according to NCASEF.
The NCASEF is the national trade group for 7-Eleven storeowners in the United States, representing the interests of nearly 4,700 convenience store owners.
