For the first time, the Red Cross partners up with Kangaroo Express to give back to those who so humbly fight for our independence each day.
Kangaroo Express, an independently operated convenience store chain in the Southeast, announced it will launch its fourth annual Salute Our Troops® campaign this summer, from June 25 to September 2. During this time period, guests in over 1,534 stores across 13 states–including North Carolina–are invited to make donations in support of our service members and their families. If you’re embarking on a road trip, need to fill up on gas, interested in the cause, or all of the above, find a location that’s convenient for you.
The American Red Cross Service to Armed Forces volunteers will be a part of this campaign, which has already raised over $8.4 million to support a wide range of cause: from assisting wounded warriors and their families to providing grants and scholarships to help send children of active duty military to school. With a strong network of Red Cross volunteers across entire the Kangaroo Express 13-state store footprint, together we can collaborate and make an even bigger impact in support of our courageous military personnel through the Salute Our Troops initiative. The 13 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Communities are invited to join the campaign in its Salute Our Troops “ROO Rides” motorcycle rides being held in support of the fundraising campaign throughout the southeastern United States. On July 5, the Triangle of North Carolina will ride on in this effort. Kickstands go up at 10 a.m. starting at the Kangaroo Express on 4402 Ten Rd. in Apex, stopping at the new Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Cary and ending with a Finale Party at Ray Price Harley Davidson in Raleigh.
