Kent Kwik has launched a new Round Up for Charity campaign to make donations throughout the year to local charities. When guests check out, they will now be asked if they would like to round up their total to the next even dollar amount and donate the extra change to a local charity. These local charities include PBRC, CASA, Keep Haskell Beautiful and Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Kent Kwik and The Kent Companies as whole prides itself on their involvement in the communities they server. A core belief is serving the communities that serve us and the hope is that the Round Up for Charity program can allow for continuous giving.
After careful consideration, The Kent Companies has made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 Charity Golf Tournament. This decision was not made lightly but with travel restrictions and limitations at the golf course, we believe it to be in the best interest of attendees and our team members to simply forgo this year’s activities.
We thank everyone who registered for our event and we are giving all attendees and sponsors the option to either be refunded the amount they paid or to roll over their sponsorship and player-fees to next year. If you have not yet given your preference of refund or rollover, please contact Katie Roberts, firstname.lastname@example.org, 432-520-4000 ext.1387.
Our hope is to be back to our regular schedule and month with the next tournament being held in June of 2021.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you all next year!

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.
