Now through January 26th, 2020, Kent Kwik Stores will be collecting donations for the Permian Basin Rehab Center’s Helping Hands campaign. During the campaign, guests can donate anywhere from $1 to $100 and write their name or the name of a loved one on a hand to be placed inside the participating store.
” Since 1953, the Permian Basin Rehab Center (PBRC) has served thousands of patients of all ages and abilities who find themselves in need. The PBRC is the Permian Basin’s only comprehensive, non-profit, multidisciplinary rehabilitation facility that provides speech, physical, occupational therapy and hearing/audiology services. The therapists of the PBRC reach a broad cross-section of the community and bring positive change into the lives of countless individuals.”
The Kent Companies and Kent Kwik Convenience Stores are proud to support the PBRC and all of the services they provide to people across the Permian Basin. Last year, The Kent Companies as a whole raised $100,000 for PBRC and are aiming to again raise that same amount.
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this year’s charity golf tournament benefiting S.H.A.R.E. This was our best year yet, be on the lookout for our press conference announcing the exact amount of funds we raised. In the meantime, check out the pictures below from the event.
On Wednesday, June 12th, The Kent Companies presented the Helen Keller Foundation with a check for $80,000. The donation comes from a company-wide collection campaign where guests donated to the charity at one of the Kent Kwik Convenience Stores or Avis Lube Fast Oil Change Center locations. The Kent Companies then matched the guest donations dollar for dollar. All of the funds will go towards fighting to prevent preventable blindness. “I strongly believe in giving back to the communities that support our businesses every day.” said Bill Kent, owner and chairman.
Based on the legacy of Helen Keller, the Foundation strives to prevent blindness and deafness by advancing research and education. The Foundation aspires to be a leader in integrating sight, speech and hearing research with the greater biomedical research community, creating and coordinating a peer-reviewed, worldwide network of
investigators and institutions.
