The 2010 toy drive, in coordination with the local chapter of the Salvation Army, is one of many programs organized by CITGO Q Mart Stores and their local supplier, Sheboygan-based Quality State Oil. In the past year, they have raised more than $60,000 in support of the local efforts of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), earning them The CITGO President’s Award for charitable contributions. CITGO Q Marts’ support of MDA is directed to local families and helps children with neuromuscular disease attend local summer camps.
“It is heart-warming to partner with such passionate members of our company and community, like Mel and other Q Mart employees, as we answer the local Salvation Army’s call for support,” said Scott Stangel of Quality State Oil. “With their leadership and the support of our customers and community we have the power to make a difference in the lives of local families. Year in, year out, Mel and others remind us of the true meaning of the holidays. I look forward to breaking last year’s collection record and helping to deliver hundreds of toys and games this holiday season.”
