Spinx stores collectively raised $164,448 for March of Dimes during the month of March. The money raised helps area moms have healthier pregnancies, assist families with newborns in the Intensive Care Units, as well as help fund research to fight birth defects and premature birth. This year’s donations also showed over a 6.5% increase in overall customer participation.
Each of the 82 Spinx convenience stores contributed to the total donation amount by encouraging customers to donate to March of Dimes while making their purchases at the counter. The 1st place store located on Marue Drive in Greenville raised $11,000 with over 27% of their customers donating to the cause. This store not only contributed the largest dollar amount, but they also raised the most money company wide. As an internal ‘thank you’, Stan Storti, Spinx President and Steve Spinks, Spinx CEO will work for a day at the Greenville store.
“I am absolutely thrilled with the hard work that our entire Spinx team put toward raising over $160,000 this year for March of Dimes through this campaign.” said Stan Storti. “We look forward to continuing to support this effort and I am excited to work on the front line at our highest donating store.”
