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.
Kent Kwik is proud to announce their latest initiative supporting students. All new student Team Members hired after April 29th that work full-time during June 1st – August 1st will receive a $1,000 college scholarship. Kent Kwik and The Kent Companies understand how important summer jobs can be for students and the hope is that this scholarship will help students with the costs of college.
Students that stay on as Kent Team Members and work at least part-time through the fall semester will be eligible for an additional $1,000 scholarship. The Kent Companies also offers a tuition reimbursement program as part of their benefits package.
