Kangaroo Express “Salute Our Troops®” Campaign Raises Nearly $2.7 Million To Support U.S. Military And Their Families

The Pantry, Inc. (Nasdaq:PTRY), the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, today announced its third annual summer-long Kangaroo Express “Salute Our Troops®” fundraising campaign has raised nearly $2.7 million, bringing the total to $8.4 million raised over the past three summers.

From Independence Day through Labor Day, June 26 through Sept. 3, Kangaroo Express invited store guests to make donations to the campaign and encouraged communities to share special messages of gratitude to the military. Through more than 1,550 Kangaroo Express stores across 13 states, customers and communities enthusiastically demonstrated united support for military personnel and their families.

“Kangaroo Express guests, associates and partners have once again united to show their appreciation for the sacrifices made by our troops and their families. The tremendous spirit and passionate gratitude demonstrated during this summer’s Salute Our Troops campaign rallied support and pride in the communities we serve,” said Joe Venezia, senior vice president of operations, Kangaroo Express. “This significant donation builds on our ongoing commitment to our nation’s troops and their families. With more than half of our stores near military installations and one-third of our associates directly connected to our troops, it’s a commitment to our family.”

Donations from the campaign will directly support the USO, helping to lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families around the world; Fisher House Foundation, donating “comfort homes” at major military and VA medical centers that enable military and Veteran’s 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 broken fundraising records for many beneficiary organizations and is among the most accomplished grassroots campaigns the USO has been involved in during its more than 70-year history.
