Texas Operation Military Kids Receives $10,000 from Stripes® Convenience Stores Through a Partnership with Red Bull® Energy Drink
(Corpus Christi, Texas) November 24, 2014 – Stripes® Stores presented $10,000 to Texas Operation Military Kids during a new store grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony held last Friday, November 21, in Killeen, Texas. The amount presented to the statewide organization reflected the portion of proceeds from the sale of the limited edition Red Bull Camo Can that was sold earlier this year at all Stripes locations from July 28 through September 28. Customers who purchased the limited edition Red Bull Camo Can at Stripes supported the non-profit organization which serves military children and youth throughout the state of Texas.
“We would like to thank Stripes for being an outstanding corporate citizen and launching this project, giving Texas Operation Military Kids support through the sale of the limited edition Red Bull Camo Can,” stated David Wright, Texas 4-H Military Program Manager. “The funds received from the Camo Can sales will help us continue the framework of our programs supporting Texas military youth and children through leadership development, health and fitness, arts and recreation, and academic mentoring and intervention.”
Texas Operation Military Kids (TOMK) is the U.S, Army’s collaborative effort with the National Guard, Army Reserves, and statewide communities to support children and youth impacted by deployment. TOMK goal is to connect military children and youth who are geographically-dispersed, with local resources in order to achieve a sense of community support and enhance their well-being.
