Wawa Honors The Military for Veterans Day
It’s Veterans Day, and Wawa is honoring the troops and our men and women in the military with a special offer.
Add day today (Nov. 11), Wawa will offer a free coffee of any size to veterans, active military members and their families, all day, with no
military ID required. Additionally, Wawa will ship more than 5,000 care packages to our troops overseas.
“At Wawa supporting our military is part of our DNA and each year, Veterans Day gives us a chance to thank our
troops, and, in our own small way, give something back to these brave and dedicated men and women,” said Chris Gheysens, Wawa’s President and CEO. “Once again, we plan to honor our military and their families with free coffee on Veterans Day, and also through a socially-distanced care package assembly at our Wawa headquarters the Tuesday before Veterans Day. In its 10th year, we’ve been providing troops abroad with a taste of home through our coffee care packages, and we are passionate about continuing this tradition for years to come.”
Operation Taste of Home care packages are an annual tradition organized by Wawa Associates and supported by the USO of Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey who together help send more than 5,000 care packages to military members currently deployed.
In addition, The Wawa Foundation will present a check to the USO for $763,332, funds raised through in-store coin and scan campaigns
held at every Wawa store during the summer of 2020, including a $50,000 scan match from The Wawa Foundation.
The funds go to programs supporting the military and their families and are distributed to the local USO centers located throughout Wawa’s operating area. Since 2012, The Wawa Foundation has raised over $7.5 million to
support USO programs and services that help to keep service members connected to family, home and country.
