In 1992, District Managers Dan McMahon and Charlie Campbell founded Sheetz for the Kidz™ as a way to give children in need the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with new toys, clothes and other basic needs. That first year, they raised $12,000 and took 126 children shopping. Today, Sheetz for the Kidz supports over 8,500 kidz in the communities that Sheetz operates every year by giving them hope and joy over the holidays.
In 2005, Sheetz for the Kidz expanded its scope of operation and partnered with Make-A-Wish to sponsor families of seriously ill children every year for a dream vacation to Orlando, FL. In 2015, we sponsored 48 families.
Sheetz for the Kidz is a Sheetz Employee run charity that is a separate organization from Sheetz, Inc. Since 1992, the organization has brought smiles to the faces of over 93,500 children thanks to donations totaling more than $21.6 Million!
