Kangaroo Express Continues Support For Troops And Their Families With Third Annual ‘Salute Our Troops®’ Campaign

The Pantry, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTRY), the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, today announced the third annual Salute Our Troops® campaign, inviting customers in its more than 1,550 Kangaroo Express convenience stores across 13 states to demonstrate united support for military personnel and their families.

From the week before Independence Day through Labor Day, June 26 through Sept. 3, Kangaroo Express will again invite store guests to make donations to the campaign and encourage communities to send special messages of praise and gratitude to the military.

Donations from the campaign will support the USO, lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families; Fisher House Foundation, donating “comfort homes” at major military and VA medical centers that enable military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization; as well as eight state-based military support organizations.

Since its inaugural year in 2011, the Salute Our Troops campaign has raised $5.7 million dollars, breaking fundraising records for many beneficiary organizations, including two of the most accomplished grassroots campaigns the USO has been involved in during its more than 70-year history.

“The United States military is a model for teamwork, with our Armed Forces working together to protect and serve our country. The same spirit of teamwork drives Salute Our Troops, rallying our guests, associates, partners and the communities we serve,” said Joe Venezia, senior vice president of operations, Kangaroo Express. “We are enlisting our team for the third time this summer to show our united appreciation for our nation’s troops and their families, and raise funds to support the military organizations dedicated to helping them.”

The eight state-based organizations benefiting from the campaign span five states throughout the Southeast and include the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of Tennessee Auxiliary Soldier Airman Relief Fund, Florida National Guard Foundation, Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation, Soldiers and Airmen Assistance Fund of North Carolina, South Carolina Military Family Care Association, and the Patriot Foundation and United States Veterans Corps, both based in North Carolina.
